    I am looking for a set of keys for this phone so I can hang it up. Looks like you have to open it to hang it up on the wall.

      It will likely be a HUGE challenge to find a coinbox key for this phone, if even possible at all. The majority of payphone models that I'm aware of had uniquely keyed coin vaults using high security locks/keyshapes, which are (were, at least) tightly controlled by their manufacturers and the TELCOs. Most locksmiths won't be able to do anything with it and may, in fact, still be legally prohibited from doing so even if they could.

      You might have better luck getting into the phone's upper housing, where its working parts reside. At least some models of the later 'single slot' phones similar to this one could be opened with a small L-shaped tool with a funny looking end (instead of an actual 'key/lock' per se) which should be much easier to either obtain or replicate. Getting into the upper housing (one way or another) should allow you to be able to securely hang the phone, at least.

      GOOD LUCK -- it's a COOL PHONE! :-)
