In the 1970s, PNI of Englewood, CO, made a series of strange (at the time) decorator phones. Subjects included a gumball machine, giant soft drink and beer cans, chest phones and replica wood wall phones.

    I was wondering if you knew more about the Gumball/Phone hybrid phone? I recently bought one at a flea market and was wondering if it was worth anything.

    Brady, As you can tell from this site, there are collectors for just about everything. It might be a challenge to get a premium price in the current economy. Your chances are better if the set is in like new condition. For more on phone values in general look here: http://www.paul-f.com/value.html

    I have a Paul Nelson Gumball phone (rotary dial) from the mid to late 70's (like the one in the above picture). It is in perfect condition and am trying to find a value for it.

    I just purchased a Paul Nelson rotary dial Coors Light Phone and I also own the Nelson Gumball Machine phone. What these phones valued at? Would love to find out.

    They made the worst bar accessories in the 1970's, very tacky and yet everyone will want one who loved the 70's. I don't really dislike them as much as I realize every decade had their share of "whatever people will buy".
    A lot of it is coming back in style, like these it reminds one of the 70's.
    I love this post, wonderful items. Phil.
