This beautiful original Western Electric model 233G 3slot payphone has a coin controller installed so it will work with coins just like it did in the old days. It has not been used since its refurbishing and restoration.
You will be the 1st one to use it . It has a very nice new finish that looks like the original finish. Its has both working locks and keys and the chrome on the vault door is superb. The ringer box included is a Western Electric subset with a polished casing.
If you are my age or older you can still remember how these 3 slot payphones worked. Most of them were taken out and replaced with single slot payphone while I was in my early 20s
This 3 slot payphone with coin controller is set up to work exactly the same way.
It is set up to work with 10cents.
When you deposit a dime you hear several dings and you receive dial tone.
Our you can deposit 2 nickels and once both are deposited you will get the dial tone. You dial the phone number. If your call is not answered and you hang up your deposit is returned.
If your call is answered, when you hang up your coin or coins are collected and go into the coin box. You must deposit the coins in order to use this phone. It is for amusement purposes only and should not be used commercially.
We do not provide the coin box. We sell coin boxes separately if you would like one.
The newer parts you see when you remove the upper housing are part of the state of the art operating coin mechanism. The coin relay has been rebuilt. The controller is mounted inside the lower housing. With the coin tray installed you can not see it.
You are supplied with a 12volt power supply which gives power to the coin mechanism. You simply plug it in. The payphone plugs into the subset. The subset has a 7ft cord to plug into your phone jack. If you need a longer cord let me know and I will make you one.
This would be perfect for a phone booth.
Now wont your guest be surprised when you tell them that your payphone works off coins and you must use coins to operate it.
