My aunt up in Maine passed away in September of 2012 and I was the executor of her estate. One of the things I inherited was an antique telephone. It is a wall telephone with the inscription "S. H. Couch Company, Boston, Mass." It has a hand crank on the right side, the mouthpiece is adjustable up and down, there is a little desk-like adjustable wooden surface for taking notes below the mouthpiece.

It is made of oak I believe and weighs around 20 or 25 pounds. Can anyone tell me how much it is worth for insurance purposes? Thank you for your time to respond.

I've come across an old Western Electric Trimline wall mount phone, yellow in color, metal base, engraved print & a sticker on base that reads... Property of Southwestern Bell
NOT FOR SALE It also has a white sticker on the base with AC2P RB1 1.

My question to yall is what would this phone be worth, either to a collector or to common everyday Joe Public and would any of yall collectors be interested in this phone.

Thx,

Bob F

Recently started collecting. I have several older phones[a Siemens candlestick,a WE 202D (I believe) and a 300 series phone from the '30s or so)]. I enjoy them all, but may need to replace the transmitter for the WE 202D; unfortunately, said transmitter appears to screw into the inside of the handset once the spitcap is removed. The transmitter top appears to have a wiremesh in an annular configuration. I don't even know if this screen is part of the transmitter or just a cover for the transmitter. Any suggestions on how to access. Many thanks. :!thinking:

I have an old black Kellogg candlestick phone (possibly bs26) that was long ago made into a lamp. It has a green glass shade like the glass from an old banker's or library desk lamp. The two bulbs can be turned on either by 2 separate pull chains or by lifting the receiver. Are there any of you collectors in Southern California (Los Angeles area)that might be interested in viewing this as a possible purchase for your collection?
Happy dialing........

Hi,
I was trying to find info. and pictures on a phone I just bought. The phone reads: Made In U.S.A. By - S H Couch Company Inc. - Norfolk Downs Mass. So far I think it is a type of intercom phone. I believe a piece from inside is missing and there seems to be no where to speak into. There is a cut nylon cord that has been cut and feeds to the front of phone through a hole. The phone is about the size of a thick paper back novel. Dark grey in color, blk. bake light speaking piece?, two chrome bells, hook for missing piece I believe and a small blk. button across from hook. Wall mount looks to be. Anyway that is what has brought me here.
