You certainly may. I paid $300 for the both of them, plus shipping, of course. ;)

I'll start adding some items here:

There are many more, as time permits.... 8) ;D ;)

2/60 510 E/F. with E1 handset. $45.00 + 10.99 ebay  itm 739999052

I thought it was worth the admission cost, for the manual 510, plus a seamless E1. Heck, what do I know?

Best regards!

I finally managed to get a three-slot payphone; I had certain things I was holding out for, for my 1st, and found a good one.

II-57 212-G, $510.00 + $35.00 shipping.

(Got a 2nd 3-slot coming, as I post this, NE-type!) 8)

Mr. Bones, Sir,

We have not spoken for quite a while as I have been away.  But it looks to me that it will soon be time for you to open a museum!

The collection is getting to be quite imposing.

Congratulations, and keep it up!

Very nice payphones, or should I be more proper and refer them as Pay Stations!! :o

It looks like it should clean up nicely, with a little polish! I think the upper housing on the Northern is WE, due to the daisy-style dial plate, and the Bell logo on the instruction card.

     Christian, thanks for the kind words of support and encouragement, my young friend! It is always appreciated. :D

     You may refer to them as either, in my presence, at least... I am not among the members of the telephone Gestapo. :o

     The NE 233 arrived today, totally intact. Great packaging job by the seller; it took 30-ish minutes to judiciously extricate from the multiple layers and materials. Bravo!

     Appearance is excellent, as-removed condition, my favorite. I enjoy the telephones reflecting the fact that they have had many years of faithful service, and wouldn't dream of polishing out a keeper. Perhaps, if I was angling to sell some, I would do so. As they say, things are only original once. ;)
 
     The upper actually is an NE233QF-3, matching the lower. Appears to be a 1968 telephone. The insides appear, to my inexperienced eyes, to be fully intact and original. I have repeatedly, flawlessly processed nickels, dimes, and quarters through it.

     It still has a 5-wire mounting cord stub attached for the subset; it appears unlikely that it has ever been tampered with, or modded.

Best regards, Amigo!

P.S. Haven't figured out a name for this one, yet...

My 1D2 I named 'Ca$h', well before it was completed and sent to me.
My 212G is called 'ten ¢ent'. ;D

How about naming it 'Long Di$tance?' ;D You would replace the 'c' with the cent symbol, my tablet keyboard doesn't have one! ::)
