One Part SC.. Two Parts WE = $270
« on: November 19, 2012, 01:12:25 PM »
Anyone watch this? It is a beautiful phone and highkiteflyer has some nice phones.... BUT $270. A SC base with a WE E1 and then a later WE dial with an unknown dial cup. It doesn't even look like a normal phone. I am at a loss...but it isn't $270....Doug

I saw that too! Quite a frankenfone. Gues some buyer who was not a collector must have liked the look!

The dial cup is WE or a copy

I recently sold three "made in china" reproduction dial holders just like that one.  They even had the phillips head screws in the side.  One of them must have found it's way to this phone!
