[WANTED] WECO 1C (OR 1C2) PAYPHONE
« on: December 20, 2020, 03:40:51 AM »
Hey folks, I'm looking for a Western Electric 1C payphone that's not been marked up 500%. Anyone got any tips, please let me know!
I like step switches, and I cannot lie.

Have you already looked on eBay?
Usually you can find some there for < $200.

$140, but not sure if this is 1C2: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-Vintage-Payphone-W-Keys-Metal-Push-Button-Telephone-Sign-Coin-Op/284119424870
Shipping might break the bank, depending on where you are.

That is neither a Western Electric nor a 1C... (1C would be rotary dial).

That is a COCOT (The coin slot is on the wrong side)

I am just looking for one of those style payphones, doesn't even have to be a WECo. It's just looking on ebay, a lot of people really mark the price up and sell it as if there was only three made in the entire world. I mean I know people sell them a lot cheaper than that.
