Hi Collectors,
I wanted to share photos of my new 1908 Pacific Telephone Pay Station courtesy of George Valenza. 
The Mrs gently asked if I am finished yet. No matter how I explain the differences between the signs she says they all look the same to her.

Thoughts: sign is great. Wife's reaction, same as the rest of our wives.


Once you get a few signs she won't notice the new ones if you don't tell her. 

That sign has been reproduced (one was on eBay recently) but that looks like the real deal.

On the above repro, the metal looks thinner, the blue border does not touch the edge and the weight of the lettering on the logo is lighter overall.
