'Eiffel Tower' up for auction
« on: May 15, 2018, 05:54:39 AM »
Not my sort of thing but even so, it looks like a bit of melange to me. What do you all think?

5 bids, bidding at £52 and 16 watchers at the time of posting this.
More pics on the listing, inc one of the (methinks later addition) feet.

(ETA: could someone please pop me a quick note re how to add an ebay listing page to a thread. Thanks.).

That cradle is the wrong one - it should loop down and then up again.
The handset also looks suspect as it wouldn't usually have the hanging loop on it.
At the current price it's still fine as the main body looks pretty decent.

My thoughts exactly, plus the dodgy feet.
I can't help but wonder if there is a KTAS body out there someplace with the top half of this phone sitting on it.  :o   ;D
