Hello everyone,

My name is John. I've been a lurker for quite some time and figured it was time to join. My main interest in phones is the 500 and all its variants. I do have others, several wood wall phones, etc, but I am most drawn to what I remember as a kid growing up in the 70's. I prefer finding phones at flea markets, estate sales, and thrift stores as I enjoy the hunt almost as much as the phones themselves.

See you on the forum!

Can't wait to see some of your collection......




I am very much in agreement the hunt is the most fun and most rewarding, I have got one of my best phones highly underpriced at a antique shop!

John (kleinkaliber),

     Welcome to the forum! I have seen a post or two by you, here and there. I'm glad to finally make your acquaintance, Sir!

     As I am sure you know by now, there are many, seemingly-inexhaustible resources here, and the occasional references to more elsewhere.

     Just about the nicest bunch of folks I've ever had the pleasure of being associated with, and I mean that most sincerely!

     Please, share what you know with us, ask what we know, when you need to, and remember:

We Wants Pictures!!! ;)
