Recent Auction Prices / Re: Blue AE 80 @$1136
« Last post by AE_Collector on Yesterday at 09:28:05 PM »
That’s the only colour I am missing (in a 90) in my AE 80/90 collection. Would sure love to find a Colonial Blue 90 one day but wouldn’t pay anywhere near that amount! Collection will have to go without. Glad I have my blue 80....given to me by a great friend.

That is a variation of a common print that you can find at phone shows. I used to have a nice framed copy before I ran out of wall space.
There is a range of print quality and frame quality on this item.
It is a nice picture, and is great for a phone room.  The only reason I sold mine  was I bought 1 more bookcase and lost the wall.

 New England Telephone & Telegraph Company long distance manual dated 1941.  A small notebook consisting of about 40 double pages.  The  manual gives long distance operators instructions on how to proceed under a variety of circumstances that they may encounter they’re out the course of their job.   They are provided with Scripps about how to interact with customers, and they are given detailed instructions on how to record each call for billing purposes .

A friend dropped by today with a surprise. He was at an auction last week and bought this print for me.
It's very detailed. I think it's awesome. Another fine addition to the phone room.
Looking for any information on it.

The last picture is all the information I found on Google.

I will have to take some pics of the transmitter when I get home. I basically have the back cup that holds the transmitter attached to the door of the phone. It has a cover on it that says property of AT&T and 323 and patent date. But when you take the cover off it has and element from a 302 phone soldered to the wires. These connections were broken. I have reattached the wires temporarily to the element and it now functions, but really I would like to put an original transmitter inside if reasonably priced. The back of the cup is stamped property of American Bell Tel company, so it appears to be pretty old. It also has the patent dates on the side of the phone ranging from 1890 to 1903. Also, it has a keyhole to open the door rather than the simple screw like some of the other phones I have.

I would think the dial number card assy should be easy to get in Europe. ATEA sets used a local version of this dial and the parts will interchange

Thanks. I'll look into that.

I have now been offered this phone for approximately half of its original price. Shipping is about $18.

If I decide to buy, it's missing its centre dial card retainer (see pic). I'm wondering if a member can point me to a supplier that will post to the UK. I have a couple of phones that are missing these (what exactly should I be asking for)?

If you can help, please p.m. or post here. They should fit into a small jiffy bag so postage shouldn't be too high? Thanks.

Series wiring ,dial shunt does not appear to be wired.Will not work unless the viristor is  removed from the receiver element. Most 3 slot paystations will work as is except for the coin relay.

I got the marquee finished. The Toronto Maple Leafs is permanent, it just stays on and the marquee will say the go leafs go is scrolling, the Leafs Nation is a flash on.
