    Thanx for the post. Sorry I didn't respond sooner but I don't check the website often. Do you have any idea what the value of my phone might be? The day that I got the phone, (47 years ago) one of my fellow employees at N. W. Bell saw me take it out of my truck and offered me $500.00 on the spot.

    Chuck, It's worth every bid of the $500.00 and more. a couple of the W.E. glass top boxes have sold on Ebay for over $800.00 during the good times. The market is soft on telephones right now.

    Steeltoad63, Thanks for your nice comments, I worked for GTE in Southern California in what they called the South Bay Division.
