Nothing wrong with being a dreamer....is there?  ???   ::)  The total bill is going to be more than $2000 for most potential buyers since it is "local pickup only" in Nova Scotia.

I've cut more info from the listing in as well as a picture. It is always preferable to add a bit more info than just the ebaY link because the ebaY link will soon go nowhere and someone reading this months from now won't have any way to determine what the item was.

Terry

From ebaY listing:
2x Northern Electric Phone Patten 1922, 1923, 1935 Alexander Graham Bell Land  
 
Item condition: Used  
 
Price: US $2,000.00

My bad I keep meaning to add the picture but I forget. I'll get it at some point.


The guy is in Cape Breton.That's far even for most people in Nova Scotia.

Maybe because these two may have breathed the same good Cape Breton air that Alexander Graham Bell breathed :)

These have been on there several times in the past few months, and I have been watching to see if the guy recovers from his delusions of grandeur!

These were bought 50km away from Alexander Graham Bells home.
