This is my first payphone I ever had. I have UPDATED this phone since my past post on it a few years ago. The two payphones I have, this is the older one (1950's). Newer circuit was installed by previous owner. Not happy of that, like "old original" better! The receiver was changed with one that would have been used in its days. I got around to mounting onto wall with a "backer board". The purpose of a backer board is so if you need to remove off wall you would have a quicker way. Painted with satin black makes a nice match to phone.
This is a "post pay" phone unlike my newer payphone (1960's) . One would dial number, then when the person on other end would answer you would deposit your dime. Other party would NOT hear you until you deposited your dime!
