I believe this is it.  This one is metal - don't think I've seen one of these before.

It also looks as if the line selector keyset has been removed from under the line/hold keys.

Those keys are ALL looking as if they are in the position they take when pressed down.  That is not possible with these phones due to what we used to call the "dogs" in the keystrip.  Only one button at a time can be pressed down. 

Probably what happened to this phone was that someone removed the keyset and thick connecting cord, and hooked up the phone with an ordinary line cord for single line service.  Notice that there is no evidence of that cord either, and it would be highly visible if it were still present. 

Whoever wants this phone should ask for a photo of the interior of it or else yank their bid. 

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but it would be worse for someone to spend a bunch of $$ and find out that the phone is missing its defining components.

John,
         I agree with GG, better ask for inside pics.  I didn't ask enough questions on a AE 880 Speaker phone and when it came in all I had was an empty shell. :'(      stub
