Comments: I recently purchased an American Bell Telephone Co. candlestick phone that I would like to get into working order. The telephone gets a dial tone and though it has a dial, does not dial out. I'm in the process of purchasing a W.E. 684A Eqv. subset box that I understand is compatible with my phone. I'm looking for someone in the Cleveland area that I can hire to do the wiring. Please contact me if you can do the wiring or if you know of someone who can.

Comments: I was at a street fair this past weekend and I saw an old telephone truck and I got to speak to the owner of the truck (#6) and he told me about this site and glade that he told me about the site. Now I have an old Kellogg switch board wall phone still has all the guts and I have 2 batteries and it is in good condition. Now my question is how I find out where the phone was manufactured and in what year and the approximate value of it? Can anyone give me some information. Thanks

I have a beautiful antique phone that I bought 20 years ago in Holland, MI . I was told at the auction that it was removed from an old church.The area is populated heavy Dutch Christian Reform Churches. It is very heavy. It has to be Oak. I would love to post a picture and see what your members know about it. It does have a label, I believe; but, I want to see if it has a serial number. I saw one on your website pictures that were rotating. It is probably 24 inches at least. I will dig up some more information and share. It still has the wire attached to ear piece. Thank you, Penny Smith.
