New Craigslist Finds
« on: November 29, 2010, 12:49:47 PM »
I run an ad on CL every month for antique phone repair, restoration, buy & sell. I got an email from a local guy on Saturday pointing me to his CL listing. I had already seen his listing and ignored it, 3 black phones for $400.00! I told him this, he responded "those are collector prices, since you are a reseller you would pay less". I asked how much less and he responded, take a look and make me an offer. Since I do not have a D mount I was interested. I took the ride to Delray Beach and offered him $150.00. He took it and I have 3 more phones, including a D mount! Couple of pictures below and more on my web album here:http://picasaweb.google.com/HarrySmith1957/CraigsListFinds

I think you got a good deal there, Harry.  OPW has the E1 transmitter caps, and occasionally they come up on ebay. 

Nicely done!

Steve Hilsz also sells parts to complete an E1 handset.  A list of parts he has can be seen here:
