DESCRIPTION

This payphone is inexcellent condition.It is hard to find onethisnice and this old witheverything included. This rare and historic bit of americana will be a lastingtreasureand a perfect gift.

I rescued a number of pay phones from General Telephone when the 3-slot phones were retired from service in 1979. This phone is one of a very few inscribed on the front panel with ..

The GrayManufacturing Company
Hartford, Conn. U.S.A.

Itdates from theearly1940's, I believe, as that was when the panel inscription included "Hartford".(William Graypatented theoriginal payphone in 1889.)This phone has undoubtedly been updated and upgraded over the years by General Telephone (GTE), but it isexactly as it was when retired from service.The I.D.plate on the top is stampedwith the GTEmodel code LPC 82 55.

Only Windex was used to clean up the chrome -- NO polish orabrasives.
There issome slight pitting and wear of the chrome, but it is hard to seeand veryhard tophotograph. The original rotary dial isstraight and turns smoothly. The handset with armored cord is original and undamaged, though it has lost some gloss near the earpiece. All of the electrical and mechanical parts are original and in perfect working order.

The payphonewill work on any home phone line. Thishas beenaccomplished by simply tying the coin relays in position.None of the original wiring has been removed or altered.

Coins are not required to call, but they will drop into the locking vault with the nostalgic "ding"for nickels, "ding-ding" for dimes, and a "bong" for quarters. Inside the vault isan original coin box withits ingenious latching lid to prevent employee theft.

These old payphones did not contain ringers. (The ringer was mounted in the phone booth or on a nearby wall.) However, if you require a ringer to hear incoming calls, please contactthe seller about aninexpensive in-line bell ringer, which also adds 6 feet of extra modular cord.

Twooriginal coinvault door keys
One newly made duplicate upper housing key.
