A nice 685A dated 1-65?
with a 425E network.
cover is stamped 12-21-64
Nice unmolested condition! :D
Heres the good part...
The garage it was found in, was mine! ???
LOL! I don't have a feel of where it came from, and when??? :o
But there it is! in a box on a shelf...
Need to find a use for it!

I'm glad I am not the only one who finds things I can't remember ever getting!
As you didn't know you had this I'm sure you'll be happy to box it up and send it to me  ;D

Keep searching.  Maybe you'll find a phone that needs a subset.

These were used on 3 slot pay phones, also other things.

Just found this Gay 10E lock-in a drawer. I got this some 16 years ago from Jim E. when I visited him after a show.  Came home, wrapped in in yellow tape (so I could see it) then put it some place safe.  I donít know how many time I looked for this, over the years.  When I found it, it is not the lock I thought it was, so I am still looking the early pay phone lock.
