Am i missing something? WE 2750 Wall PHone
« on: June 14, 2018, 06:17:11 PM »
I ran across this a few days ago, and about fell off my chair.
What am I missing?

They must think the unique, one-of-a-kind (non-Bell-System) display enclosure with picture hanger loops is worth something.

I thought that was a home made display. What's with the 69 bell symbol upper right? I guess something they added.
What a ridiculous price they are asking.

There was a wallphone mounted in a wooden wine crate on eBay the other week.

Must be a new trend.

I think it's amazing how people "customize" a phone, then think it's worth twelve times its value.
I don't even like the rough cut look this one sports. An interesting idea, just not that well done.

I offered him $85. Probably more than its worth.
