    Hi all! I had picked up a Porcelain Public Phone Sign some years ago and finally got an old 1960's Payphone to go with it. I believe it's a Western Electric mod # 223G. This phone was on E-Bay as a "buy it now" but no one was going for it as it's in a little rough condition and shipping it was pricey. I contacted the seller and made them an offer and they accepted and shipped it right away, many thanks to them! I'll clean this up and get some missing parts and put a fresh coat of paint on it, fun fun!! Enjoy!
    UPDATE: 1 new Photo added, I took this all apart, cleaned and sanded it, put 3 coats of semi-gloss Black on it and now just waiting for the missing lock to come in. Thanks for looking!

      nice .. reminds me of Somewhere around 1967 when I was a teen, you could get all the free payphone
      calling you wanted from a phonebooth by using a booby-pin. The mouth and
      earpieces of the always-black plastic (bakelite?) handset were a filled-in
      circle of perforations-- you spread the bobby-pin, poked one end into a
      center hole in the mouthpiece, the other end into one of the perimeter
      mouthpiece holes, then touched the other end of bobby-pin to exposed metal
      on the phone body. It would usually produce a small spark, and then you got
      the dial-tone, made your call. All of the booths near the teen hangouts had
      bobby-pins lined up ready to go.

      shareurpassion, Thanks, I bet your right, when the little ones come over I let them play with my old phones and that way they see what we grew up with.
