Here is another of what I call my "assembled" telephones.  I took a very nice original phone and added all the chrome trim pieces "donated" by other phones.  Other than polishing the chrome trim pieces, this phone is all original, only receiving a clean and detail.

I am the original owner of this one.  I paid about $200 for it in the very early '80's.  That's about $500 in today's money.  I bought it at the local mall AT&T store.

I've got the same candlestick, I didn't know they came in such a nice box when new.

Off hand , I can think of  Black, Ivory, Stars & Stripes, Canadian Maple Leaf, Pepsi, Denver Bronco's and some others.

Black is most common, Then Ivory, then stars & stripes, then Canadian Maple leaf. Any of the others are really hard to find.

Kenny,
I would say that the black or ivory may be worth up to about $20.00. and only if they are nice. The starts & Stripes may be worth $30.

Pepsi and Denver Bronco's ect can bring over $100.00.

I suspect you can find 1 cheaper than $30.00.
JMO,
Jim

Don't forget the red ones. They are pretty common as well. The only colors I have seen are Ivory, Black & Red.

Terry
I have seen the red. I have seen more of the stars and stripes tho.
The Denver Broncos was a special edition . They were only avaliable in the parking lot of Mile high stadium during home games. This was around the time denver went to the superbowl.

They probably made a lot of the superbowl teams phone over the years.
They also made a Bronco's chest phone at the same time.

I think I have seen other advertising candlesticks besides the Pepsi. The pepsi is the only one I can recall offhand.
