There are several people who have huge collections of older 500 and
2500 sets. They peddle them out at $25 to $50 a pop.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: Just think ... 500/2500 sets used to be
as common (or more so) than Western Union clocks, and just as easy to
come by ... walk in an office, walk out with one or two. Now clocks,
as well as Genuine Bell telephones are getting quite hard to come by,
and the people who sell them (for a slight fortune) are quite willing
to pick your pockets in the process. I wish I could get one or two of
the 2500 phones ... :( PAT]
