    I came across this Payphone today at a Antique shop. Looks to be a late 50's - 60's vintage. Went home thought it over and consulted another "ATCA" club member. Went back and purchased it.
    Just bought a replacement lock & key for coin collector door. Was locked with no keys... Luckly the coin box was not inside. Would have made replacing door lock much harder. The upper lock to open "head" is a standard 29S key.
    Now waiting for old coin box. Replaced the rubber cord with armored receiver cord.

    UPDATE: I have both keys for both locks and have a coin collector box with working spring loaded box top door. The top I added an advertisement sign, all old and original. The "out of order" sign too. I replaced dial with clean adjusted with correct settings. Thanks to "Steve Hilsz"; ATCA member who does this for a great price!
    Another tid bit of information... If you are going to switch your phone service to AT&T U-VOICE, count on NOT being able to use your old antique phones. I had AT&T U-VOICE for less than one year. Switched back now to OLD REGULAR LAND LINE, now I can use my pay phone as well as my other old telephones if I choose to.

      We used one like this for years in Ohio, been packed away now for seven years. I need to dig in out and see if it will work on the Cox digital lines.
