The seller of the AE40 clearly had no idea idea of just what they had.  They must have been shocked to see the ending price.

It'd be nice to find something that is worth that much... :(

The market is definitely off a little though. There was a time when a good red AE 40 would bring $1500 without any hesitation. This one brought only $948.

And the
 "ANTIQUE RARE WESTERN ELECTRIC NO.10 TAPERED SHAFT CANDLESTICK TELEPHONE"
$1238.00
