Barn Fresh Telephones

(1/9) > >>

TelePlay:
These have been listed on the forum over the years but they are all over the place. This topic will be a place to note those "barn fresh" phones either purchased or spotted for sale anywhere. Doesn't take much to describe what qualifies, just look at the first phone listed. This should become a slowly growing repository of very sad phones.

Post them as you find them here, when and wherever you find them, and if anyone actually buys one of them, before and after photos for the Notable Refurbs (Back from the Dead) topic are required.

I'll start the topic off with this two piece wall phone currently on eBay at $15.50 by way of 5 bids which only "needs some TLC!"

the AE 21 needs serious work.... its missing too many parts. the other phone is too expensive.

TelePlay:
Just ran across this one which was posted by Phonesrfun about 5 years ago. Not only barn fresh but also barn damaged as well.

Here's another one of these "barn fresh" phones posted by DavePEI in March of 2013, An AE34 in sad shape.

I've seen phones with a "Mother-in-Law Receiver" but that first one seems to have a "Mother-in-Law Transmitter"!
