50G payphone
« on: July 11, 2019, 02:10:57 AM »
I have this 50G Payphone w/ the older version 139 A backboard.  This telephone is unusual because it was never put into service.  It was bolted down to a test cart used in the Central Office.  Because it was never put into service, it is in perfect condition other than some wear on the switch hook due to the testing procedure. There is no vault door or upper housing lock  because there was no need for them.  I don't think a better quality 50G will ever be found. I have included a photo of the test cart that it was mounted on as well as a few photos of the payphone itself. Is anyone interested in this payphone? If so, please make me an offer. Please respond to: 4123@frontiernet.net

Who in their right mind would have bought the cart without the phone?  Why separate something original?

Yea, I agree I would have kept the cart, that's just a real nice part of the story and set up.

Nice cart, but it takes up a lot of space.
I understand why you sold it.
