I have a pink 554 from 1969 hanging in my kitchen, which my wife says doesn't match the decor, so I am anxiously awaiting the outcome of this auction.

Me too!! I never CAN second guess the way these auctions will turn out.  It seems to have generated some interest though.

Final price was $257.33 which isn't bad because a guy gave me this phone (unrestored) and $100 for an aqua 554 I'd done.

You could sell snow to the eskimos and still make a profit.  ;)

PS: Have you ever sold a white phone?

I've seen a white 500 he had on sale from last year.

I don't know about that, I'm just happy to sell shiny phones to middle-aged ladies! 
I have sold several white 500s.  I love them in white, but they don't bring much over $100 in my experience.  Here are some photos of a '59:

You guys are too kind!  Actually I'm not real proud of those pictures--the phone has a bluish cast that's a little distracting.  These days I use a photo editing program that can correct that.

$202 and change for a pink 554!!!  My kitchen phone's days are numbered-a little Novus and some Armor-All and some elbow grease and I am in business.  I even have a pink modular cord to go with it.  If I can break $150 I'll be thrilled. ;D
