I’ll bet all the forum-related views and low offers have only convinced him that he has a prize there.  I don’t think we should underestimate the number of years that item could remain listed....  ;)

So then three years is my first guess

I first posted about the 2 "Emergency, Presidential, Bat" phones back in July 2018: http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=20813.msg212992#msg212992
Nearly 2 years now and still no buyer! I don't understand why they are not selling ???

I noticed that it was back. Apparently so did many other forum members.
Someone should offer to sell him a replacement cap and transmitter element.

I sent him the link to this thread.

The red 500 w/ dial blank sold for $100. More than I would of paid, but a red manual WE 500 is a bit hard to find.

Could you add a screenshot of the eBay listing please Jim, can’t find it in seller ‘sold’ history.

The seller sent me a message regarding this thread. He said to point out the red set sold for $100.

I see, thanks. Guess he must have sold it outside of eBay, that’s why no sold history.
