Don't really know how to initiate one of these, but I think John does ;-)  My first guess will be $375.00

It's indeed a pretty little phone, but with those dings, messed-up logo on the back, and a 40-hertz frequency ringer, I'd say $225.00, rare color or not.

However, to my amazement, this just went for $353.40 in its condition...  :-\  I know about the rarity of mahogany original WE 500s, but still...  more than I'd have paid.  But then, what do I know, I'm an AE guy.  ::) ;D
