If there are many thousands of these payphones, I would try to run a lamp shaft up againsthe against the back. (Metal screws through the lamp shaft securing ito it to the back causing damage but as little damage as possible.)
Not drilling a hole in the top of the ITT desk phone I am working on. (WE base and handset)
I would wanthe want the pay phone working.
Could it be made to require coins even though connected touresidentialine to our residential line?

David, Thanks! Those pictures help a lot. Mine isn't the Special, it's just the plain 327 A. It has the same 273W transmitter attached with the same 3 clips. My hook switch is much different, and mine looks like it has an early WE resistor connected inside. My push button is on the side vs bottom. The label inside mine has worn away, you can see where it was, and the outside WE decal was on the right side on mine. I can replace that. My receiver looks original but is labeled Hawthorn, with a Z by the pin connectors. The cap is stuck so I need to get that loose some how. I brought this out to clean and restore but wanted to make sure it's all there. Compared to your pics I think it probably is.
