Comments: Recently, I inherited my Dad's collection of antique phones and accessories. He retired from the Bell System in 1983 after 33 years. We have an assortment of antique phones, insullators, lineman equipemtna and signage.
I am trying to determine the value of all of this.

Comments: I'm trying to find out the year of a phone I inherited. And maybe a little about it. It's a Western Electric, wall phone. The best I've come up with is that it may be from the 20's or 30's. I can email a pic if anyone can help me. It was my Grandma and Grandpa's. Nostalgic. Help please.

Comments: I have an old metal phone that is rotary dial. You hang up on top of the phone. The serial number is 6227 and the model is JO-4 TELEPHONE. eVERYTHING SEEMS TO WORK, BUT IT has a 4 prong connector, so I am unable to test it. The only thing missing, is the screw on cap to the mouth piece, but that does not interfere with it's functioning. Could I get an estimate on it's value?
