My recent estate sale finds

There is more.  I found the Motherload at one estate sale in NJ.

Like:  a WE 302, A Stromberg Carlson 5 MAGNETO Crank Phone, a Bell 5302, 3 WE 500s, 2 Northern Electric 717 Crank phones, A Stromberg PTT Candlestick phone, PTT Handsets,  Cords and dials.  And more....!!!

Quite a Motherload, eh?

That is a very nice two boxer wood phone and with an OST receiver, which if in good condition alone is worth around $100 by itself.

The wood phone members can help you with tips on how to "freshen" it up and maybe getting it to work, depending on what you want to do with it.

Good start to your collection.

Yes, I do sell on EBay.  Under KJMKOLLECTIBLES.  Check out my listings.  The Candlestick is sold.
