    In the 1970s, PNI of Englewood, CO, made a series of strange (at the time) decorator phones. Subjects included a gumball machine, giant soft drink and beer cans, chest phones and replica wood wall phones.

      I was wondering if you knew more about the Gumball/Phone hybrid phone? I recently bought one at a flea market and was wondering if it was worth anything.

      Brady, As you can tell from this site, there are collectors for just about everything. It might be a challenge to get a premium price in the current economy. Your chances are better if the set is in like new condition. For more on phone values in general look here:

      I have a Paul Nelson Gumball phone (rotary dial) from the mid to late 70's (like the one in the above picture). It is in perfect condition and am trying to find a value for it.

      I just purchased a Paul Nelson rotary dial Coors Light Phone and I also own the Nelson Gumball Machine phone. What these phones valued at? Would love to find out.
