Hi all,

It's been a long time since I've posted, but I've been reading and following along this forum to the best of my ability with my busy schedule.

Recently, I have been sorting through the basement, and I have found a couple phones that are duplicates or I'm not interested in keeping. I know when I got into the hobby and first started attending the Lancaster show (about age 14), having connections and people to give you a good deal was super helpful for my collection and to build up knowledge. Hopefully I can do the same for a new, young collector. I'm not asking much for any of them, mostly just the cost of shipping. If you are or know someone, feel free to PM me.

Before I list them on eBay I have:

-1. 1960 WE Princess in Pink, faded but has everything.
-4 AE touchtone Starlight phones, faded but free of cracks (perhaps a good project to try chemical bleaching on).
-1 WE 410 (two line).
-1 AE 80 in Pink (no discoloration, but in pieces).
-Various WE 500 parts

Glad to see your still around, always enjoyed your posts.
Good for you on thinking of the younger collectors, like you once were.
