I stopped counting at one hundred!
« on: March 29, 2013, 07:16:53 PM »
Hello All,
I have been busy these past couple weeks going through boxes of stuff and while I am not done, I did accomplish a lot so far. I seriously stopped counting at one hundred phones. Not everything made it's way to my basement yet. I would say I still have approximately 30-40 more phones and that's without mentioning all the parts, speakers and boxes full of doo*dads! The payphones, 202's and some 302's along with ringers are still upstairs too. I felt like posting a few pics just so you can see what I have up against. I will post more when I finish getting everything uncovered.
Thanks,
Mo

I don't usually say this but, OMG!! I have like 70-80 phones and the collection seems small because they are spread through out the house.

Are you going to sell any of it? Id be interested.

Did you find any more Picture Phones?  Make sure you check all the boxes.

No, but I did find a cool exotic candlestick phone in a big gray box. All yours for only $300. ;)

I am still hoping to uncover a twin Picturephone. I'm not ruling it out until the attic is clear and I've got  a lot more boxes to go through.

MagicMo;
The only phone I'm really looking for, is a hardwired Black princess. If you find one and want to sell it please let me know.

Is that a payphone under the table with an "out of order" sticker on it?  Is it a 3-slot?

I got excited when I saw the model 500 with the 95A dial blank! Are these going on ebay?

The 95A dial blank phone - is that the one in the 5th photo from the top, the early style smooth blank?   I think of that as the "baby moon" blank, reminds me of Baby Moon hubcaps from the '60s/70s.   Those are very cool, and don't seem to come along often.
