WE Payphone From Omni Center Atlanta
« on: September 07, 2017, 08:38:48 PM »
How hard it is to verify if, in fact the seller is truthful when he says it came from the Omni Center in Atlanta,GA?

You probably don't have a provenance, unless there was some special characteristic of it that would place it.  I've not seen a brown colored Bell South payphone before.

Looks like it was repainted. Notice the over-spray on the black backboard.

There was another brown single slot coin phone on EBay a while back. Seller said it came from the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
