Really?

Seems a shame to break up such a great collection for no one will buy them all, or could probably afford to buy them all.

Should be an interesting auction.

If Pete is selling off all his phones, I have to assume the web site will disappear someday soon.  That's a wonderful web site that i use to compare some of my candlesticks with.  I guess I will have to go through the website and copy all those pictures........

He's not selling all of them. He's downsizing, but also decided to list all the WE because so many people collect those.

I pulled his web site up, and he has already deleted all the phones except the ones he is auctioning.  guess I'm a day late copying all those c/s pictures.

What a shame that the other phones have been deleted and the photo documentation and reference is no longer availabe.

Pete also provided a more detailed list of the lots given to the auctioneer that can be viewed temporarily here:
 
   http://doc.telephonecollectors.info/auctions/PDAcosta/1.pdf
 
Also, rest assured that Pete did not delete the other photos.  He apparently just removed the links - probably temporarily.  I suspect his site will go back to normal after the auction.  The direct links to the pages still work...

Those who care to can quickly archive them on their hard drives, just in case...
