Yet again, more items from the same Bell employee.

A few more different items from the Bell employee. He sent me an email saying that he had found more.
Yes that is a reproduction sign, but the rest is the real deal.

The three blue “Bell” thingies are coin gauges for the top of Millenium Payphones. Now you need three Millenium Payphones to attach to those gauges!

Or sell them to someone who already has one and want to change out the logo's and coin design.  :)

The Bell System hubcap sign appears to be a repro. Notice the thick dark border.

Yes it is, and Doug did state that it was a reproduction sign in his description of the items he purchased.

The fan that came in with the items I got from the Bell Guy is a 1940's 18" Robbins & Myers. It came out of a Bell CO. The asset tag that I got in the last haul belongs to this fan. I gave the fan a good cleaning and some servicing. It is now sitting beside my 1918 Brass 16" GE Fan on the 1940's Telephone Booth.
