It must have been the fake leather strip on the bottom.  Or maybe the missing terminal strip in the base.  I'm sure the burgered up and modernized ringer box added quite a bit to the price also.  But the drilled out transmitter cup probably put it over the top!

It wasn't even a leather strip.  It was a cloth cord wrapped around.  The perch looked like it was probably a lamp at some point too. It even had plastic wires on the inside.

"Seller Notes:  'Appears to be complete and does work when plugged in.' "

Guess that would apply equally as a lamp or as a phone.

There must be something we do not see. Over 80 bids including one of the regular phone buyers??

Looks like a lot of bids was one person trying to expose someones max....Probably the seller using a different account or a "buddy"...Might have gotten some fake hype on the phone causing a lot of fake attention....Maybe.
