I found this old phone in the basement of my house.
It is in pretty good shape, but I have search everywhere, and can't seem to find any others that are similar to this one.
The mouthpiece has a tag that says Western Electric Company 228 W.
The hanging black receiver says Western Electric Company - 143W

Has anyone seem one like this before?
I am not interested in selling this, but, what would something like this be worth?

    Your Intercom was manufactured by the Electric Goods Manufacturing Co. of Boston. The transmitter faceplate should read "Samson" not Western Electric. I hope this helps.
