Comments: My wife was thrift shopping, and at garage sales the other day and found a beautiful oak phone in almost mint condition. The reciever part looks brass and has Patented in USA November 1910 stamped on it. there is a box just below with a slot for 5 cents, 10 cents and 25 cents. The placard just above that says, "Call central office as usual, do not deposit money until told by operator" The front opens and there is a dial inside. This phone is so neat! Can anyone tell me more about it?

I would like to find a private collector who might like to have same for a fair price. Is there an "Antique Phone" collector's website that I can use for this purpose? (919-846-9331)

Comments: Hi: I'm 81 year old twin, male, born 1929 in the house that was owned by a small telephone company. The birth took place in bedroom above the Telephone Office Switchboard. My twin and I were announced to many of the citzens in our small village in northern wisconsin and also to folkes living in Chicago. I lived in the home untill joining the Army 1958. Would like to communicate with anyone who might have had the same experience.
