It is in good shape, but the color is turning towards "salmon" pink.

Did you sell it on ebay or at the show you attended some months ago?

Did he re-use your photos, too?   For that matter he'll probably ship it in the same box you used.  

On the other hand, he may be waiting awhile to get that $1150.   It's nice.   But $1150?

Was it this one?

That would be a good name to add to Terry's list.  He doesn't appear there.  Maybe it's a typo.

Okay, I see the difference now...Harry charged $11 shipping where as this guy is tossing shipping in for free. I think I'm going to go for it...I love "Free Shipping"!!

Harry:

It is the inflation that brought the price so high since you sold it.  ;D ;D ;D ;D

What you DIDN'T know, Harry, is that this was Marilyn Monroe's personal bedside phone!  She used to call Jack Kennedy on it.
