Dang!

Only thing that would have made it a "PERFECT 10" find would have been a straight, gray handset cord & matching gray 4-prong plug!

Good eyes Doug!

Those WE grays have been going for north of $500 lately on eBay.

even if a gray 4-prong plug would match nicely it would't be time period correct to that phone as came later in the 1960's:

That's why I commonly list my things on eBay as a private listing. It's fine between friends to show off that kind of thing sometimes, but that's why I go private with my stuff, because I know it could be sniffed out on here. You never know what kind of press something will get on a forum, possibly good or bad, which can influence auction results.
