I don't get it. If I was selling it, I'd get $120.00 max.

I totally missed that one!  Not too upset that I did at that price, but I thought I had a better handle on spotting the worthy auctions.

I saw that one earlier in the week, when the bids were MUCH lower.  I wondered if that might happen.

This one was just up the road in Denver. I missed it by about $400.00. It is 3 months older than the one I recently found in the basement ( 9/51 500T)

This one has a straight cord and mine has a 1953 curly cord.
This one has the dial center in an envelope, and I can easily dig out  a dial center for mine.

I thought this  would look nice next to my 9/1951 500 T. I really didn't expect it to hit over $200.00.

I think the buyer overpaid and the seller got very lucky.
JMO,
Jim

WOW, incredible price. It also appears bidder 5***9 spent the last hour bidding only to get sniped at the end.

Anyone spotted the J/K '51 500 running on ebay? I tried posting some pics but no luck for some reason.

Good grief what a price!  I had no idea that a 51' T model 500 would bring this kind of loot, figured they were 50 dollars phones max.

Tom, I spotted that one today but did not think it was worth posting here as most here seem to keep a pretty close watch on eBay.

McHeath....This is a sellers dream, two people who truly want the phone, with DEEP pockets. If you notice the Bidder who ended up in second place, he does not lose too many eBay auctions. In the past few weeks he has won some very high price phones and has for the many years I could watch him on eBay. There were two buyers on eBay, fellow club members who spent huge amounts of $$ monthly, he was one of the two. Your $50 is a fair assessment of its value in my humble opinion...Doug
