    Hey everyone! I have this phone....wall...booth...vintage...stain glass um...DealyMabop?

    Would any one be kind enough to shed a little light on what I have here, what the proper way to refer to it is and what it may be worth? The phone, I gather is from the 60's? Three coin heavy deal, the type of handset you could knock someone out with. Condition of the booth part is great, the phone itself could stand a refurb/detail. It looks like it could be brought back to a pretty nice level with just some never dull and a little formula 2000. It is not connected/secured to the phone booth itself in any way, it just sits in and on it as pictured. There is a phone cord coming out of the rear of the phone and there is a lamp cable for the booth itself with a switch on top for the light. Phone book drawer on front works as it should. Ya, you open it, pretty amazing.

      Your payphone looks like a Western Electric manufactured around the late 1970's/1980's. the value is around $300.00. The custom made boothette was more than likely used in a upscale restaurant/hotel. The value is hard to tell on custom made boothette like yours.

      No plate on the lower rear with any info on it. The only thing on the rear of the unit is a 212G at the top in big bock font about 1" in heith.
