Title: Traded NT Centurion for NT Millennium
Post by: Duffy on March 22, 2018, 09:52:01 PM
A couple of weeks ago I made a trade for a NT Millennium. It had no keys and the fellow I got it from had it as a display for two years. I traded him a working 1980ís Centurion for it. He wanted a working pay phone for his man cave. After I got it, drilled the locks out and opened it. Received some locks from another collector and someone else I know has a demo chip, he is sending me a personalized copy of it. It will be up and operating as soon as the chip arrives. I have it mounted and displayed. I started to convert a room in the basement that has been a storage and overflow room for the past 11 years. Iím slowly starting to move some of my display phones and other pieces in from the garage. I still have a way to go as I only have a third of the room emptied. The old storage room paneling doesnít look to bad with the phones.

It is always nice to have a phone room. I split my basement room into a display and (phone) storage area. I divided it with tall display shelves.
The storage side is set up for "bankers" boxes of telephones. This has boxes 1 deep and not more than 4 high per shelf, the storage will hold 96 boxes with a walkway between them.
 In theory I will eventually label the boxes with descriptions better than "telephones".
The display side of the room is for rotating displays of phones.
