Seriously? This phone isn't even worth the $22.00  :o it takes to ship it!!! I've seen some outrageous prices for phones, but this might take the cake!

===========================

Seller Description: 1940 Vintage Bell System 302 Rotary Dial Telephone Phone Metal Case -- Up for sale is a vintage 1940 Bell System 300 Series Rotary Dial Telephone / Phone. It has metal case and I believe is model 302. Sometime ago the wire in the back of the phone was cut, and the body of phone was painted red and used it as a decorative piece. I opened the bottom case and inside looks pretty good. I also found 2 locations dating this phone back to 1940. Measures approx 5"x7.5"x5" and the handle is approx 9" long. Current value for this phone in metal casing is approx $400, I will let it go for only $75. Sold as is for parts or decorative pieces. Thanks!

He probably "Saw another red one just like it sell for $500 last week on ebay".

And that one wasn't even two tone. And didn't look as old! At least you can see the black showing through the paint on this one :)

This phone has been on a few other sale sites for months. The listed price is 75.00. $22.00 shipping seems a tad expensive as well. There better be bows on the box.
