All forum members are welcome and encouraged to guess.There are no wrong guesses, just one lucky guess. No one knows the winning guess on any auction until it ends.

Date Listed:  14 Jan 2018
Auction Duration:  7 Days
List Price:  $49.99
Current Bidders:  1
Current Price:  $49.99
Watchers:  6

eBay Link:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/263436970508

Seller Listing Title:  "STATEROOM TELEPHONE RMS WINDSOR CASTLE 1922-43 UNION CASTLE LINE STEAMSHIP"
Condition:  "Used"
Condition Qualifier:  " - - - "

Listing Description:  "SUPER RARE STATEROOM PHONE FROM THE UNION CASTLE LINE'S RMS WINDSOR CASTLE. THIS PHONE DATES FROM HER EARLY DAYS 1920'S-30'S."

NOTE: While I do not buy/trust/believe the owner's stated provenance of this phone, this is still a very nice, white or ivory ship's wall phone in good condition. Got to be worth something more than the starting bid, but how much more? Maybe nothing more. Only need two guesses to make it a contest.

I was watching the Patriots and did not up my bid. This is a great phone. Went lower than I thought. I lost one but won another....Doug
