I would suggest that you contact Payphone Installer here, he probably has all the parts that you'd need.

Get in touch with 'payphone installer' his name is Jim. He's on this forum as well as the ATCA facebook page. He can probably help you with both.

Would you add a photo or two of the complete phone with the front on so we can see what you have.

Here is a photo of the front. Not sure of the model but has the bell logo and the coin return door says Bell System Made by Western Electric


The BellSouth instruction cards and vault door were added later by me...the phone did not come with them


I sent payphone installer a message and will see what his reply is. Thanks all


You're payphone is a 1C if you were wondering.


Also, nice phone that looks like a beautiful condition phone, once you get the phone parts that you need that looks like it will clean up well 😀
