Been a long time since I posted here. I found these two phones this weekend for $35 each. I was shocked

WOW! That is certainly a find of the month or maybe the year! One of those in color is a difficult find, never mind 2! At that price it is a steal!

Wow, great score, and great price.  Those are begging to be used in some sort of Christmas display.  Congrats!

That is certainly the find of the year.  Those phones could go for $1K+ each.

After consideration,
I think these can be considered a set.  They are old and have been together forever.
You can enter them in as a set on find of the month.

Thanks,

Edit to add>This is a really amazing find. It is hard to find 1 colored AE40's, it is harder to find them cheap, It is amazing to find a pair cheap. It is a really  great find.
 BTW I have seen the bands offered for $35.00/pair plus shipping<<<<edit

This is a good thought, thanks for pointing that out Jim.
It is mentioned in the conditions for the FOTM that "one find" may include multiple items.

WOW! (not sure what else to say).
Might as well run this year's Find Of The Year now as I think we already have the winner. ;D
