So I've been chatting with this seller, and it sounds like they aren't going anywhere fast since "they are all now boxed up in the garage (and too cold to work in there right now, lol). Maybe in spring Iíll take individual pics and post again :)"

So I asked if they'd consider selling them as a lot. They replied "Not sure of the price for all, but I would be open to offers. They are taking up space right now, so I would be happy to sell them all at once. What were you thinking? I have a variety of rotary and push button mostly in black and white colours. Some Iíve tested and are working, some I havenít tested. Do you have a price in mind you would be comfortable paying? And I wonít get offended by whatever you offer"

Thoughts? I'm sure he probably doesn't want $16k 🤣

Looks like good deals to me at $25.  In that first pic of 4 phones, I'd pay $25 each for the white hardwired 2500 (since mine is modular), and the black bakelite phone on the wooden crate behind it.  Of course, ya never know about the dreaded shipping bill.  It's a killer for lots of deals.

I been doing this a long time. $50.00 for all  with local pick-up.It  is  generous from  my standpoint.

If I sound cheap then contact me for some great deals on my common phones. I am serious.
