Vintage Rotary 3 Coin Pay Phone Bicentennial Eastern Electric Bell System 1976
Vintage Bicentennial 3 coin slot Bell system pay telephone. Manufactured by Eastern Electric in 1976 to mark the bicentennial celebrations this metal payphone is decorated in patriotic colors throughout, with patriotic symbols such as the eagle on the center and on the topper. As each coin is deposited it makes a different sound, one ring for a nickel, two for a dime and a dong sound for the quarter. This series of chimes was to enable the operator to decipher how much was deposited when putting a call through the switch board. The locked coin box retains its original key.
