    earthandmagneto, based on the ringers that had a Holtzer-Cabot patent on them the year would be 1898. The bells were marked AB&C Co. for Ansonia Brass & Copper Co.

    Thanks for the reply...One more question about my phone... even with it having the 4prong plug in it was made during that era?
  14. ttomtucker ttomtucker, 3 years ago
    bem6207,The Bell system started using the round four prong jacks in the 1960's, modular jacks were patented by Bell system in 1975.
