A couple of Princesses on eBay
« on: September 21, 2010, 10:17:14 AM »
Wife doesn't want a Princess, so I'm spreading the word. Both of these went up about the same time, and they're from the same seller.

Here's a yellow Touch Tone model:

And a turquoise rotary:

The "turquoise" set sure looks aqua to me.

Recently it was mentioned on this Forum how rare a black hardwired Princess is. If that is the case then this one went pretty cheap. Or did it?

Yup,  I did bid,  but lost the auction.  If I had seen the Black princess phone in person I would have paid more. But eBay bidding on phones is often a hit or miss situation.
