Do I sense a tad of built up frustration?


 ;)


'Exclusive to Us'
...I made it.

'Extension Telephone'
...ringer not working.

'Original Cables'
...cables need replacing.

'Original Two Tone Phone'
...originally two broken phones.

'One of these sold recently for 1000'
...I'm expecting no less for mine.

'(famous person's) phone'
...we were told that so it's true and worth a lot of money.

'Sold for Parts/Spares'
...nothing will get this working. We've tried.

Well actually a lot of that is dead on true. Unfortunately I've been duped as well. But my biggest thing is when it's obviously not what they say it is, such as an AE 80, calling it a westerns electric phone, telephone.
Not! Or there listing has such bad English they are not selling from the USA, but rather China, or some other places.
