Don't want to steal your thunder Bingster, but this one is a beauty and I wonder what it will go for?

$1287.00.  It needs a flex cord (handset) replacement.  Great telephone.

Wow!  Those "Jukebox" AE50s are always out of my range even in black with no chrome.  I knew the colored ones were made, but never saw one on Ebay. What a great green. I'll guess $1300., but I never get these contests right. :D

I've sent a message, too, explaining to the seller that he may have been rooked.  We'll see what happens.
