Telephone Collectors South Africa

Well here it is.  Hopefully folks will join me with this project.  There are no telephone collectors clubs, associations or groups in South Africa.  So this is my attempt at creating something where collectors worldwide and in SA can get together and share information on this interesting subject.  There will be no membership charges and if and when folks join, I shall put together a database of members and their contact details should they want to be contacted.

I shall try to put up posts on a regular basis but I request that members and visitors send me information for the posts.  Shortly an email address will be added to the contact details section and links will be added.  Sould anyone wish to add their links, just contact me.

He is asking $1.2mil.USD for the collection and property, or you may purchase just the collection for $1mil. USD. If this interest you, you may view at for more information.
