Waking up a old thread to prevent duplicate topics...

These are my top three.  The first is an acquisition from this weekend (and what gave me the idea for this post).  An original acetate that was on filthy 202 with a 634BA subset that I got for $40 (it has plenty of potential for clean up).  It's special to me because it came from an actual estate in New Hope, PA my favorite place in Bucks County.

The second I like because of the round number and the ringing cadence instructions (which I assume is for a party line?).

And the pièce de résistance, the crown jewel, is my original Bell System logo card.  You often see these reproduced in restored phones, but I have yet to see another original on ebay.  This was hidden behind the first 302 I purchased (and only my second phone).  Beginner's luck!

What are some of your favorites?

I've always wondered who may have owned this phone. It's a 5302. What's weird is the last 4 digits are the same as our home phone when I was growing up. 2527.

These are the most interesting I have in my collection now:

Here is one I made that I was actually able to use my last name and phone number.
