great minds think alike Harry, I have just made a topic on the very same phone a few minutes ago. Do you have any 1951's or 1950's?

Were you the sniper? ;D

No, I do not have any early 500's yet and I wanted this one >:(

No I have three early ones and am very fortunate and don't need any more. I am surprised at how high it went. I was guessing $80 tops...

I got a very similar 500 (2-53) on ebay a while back for about $13.  I guess I got a bargain.

Well, I discovered there was no way I would have won that phone. The sniper was none other than

 NAna011 :o

Apparently he has 3 ebay accounts, this one, ontariosummergardener, nana011 & wycor_e-sales_canada

Anyone got a nice early 500T they want to part with? Obviously if he is going after them on ebay I will not get one there >:(
