    These candlestick phones do real well on ebay. Depending on the model # of the phone it should bring between 2 and 5 hundred with the magneto box. Good photos and numbers of the box and phone are a must in your description.

    Your candlestick was Manufactured by Automatic Electric of Chicago, IL which was the manufacturing arm of GTE now Verizon. The phone dates from 1918 -1920. It look like your phone was converted by the telephone co going by the white FCC tag in the ringer box. It would sell more like in the 200.00 range.
