Its coin validator is all plastic and has a ribbon cable coming from it.
The ribbon connector goes to a control board that has a lot of IC's and a few dip switch controls.
Here is my question.... how can I find this phones model number?
I haven't found it yet inside or out. Is there a place where I can look at a library of pictures and duduce the model?
From my experience, if the coin validator is plastic, then it's probably not a Bell System payphone. There are a couple of major manufacturers of these units. Can you post a picture of the beast?
I'll dig around the web some more and try and find some example shots you might could use.
Just askin', but what are the order of the coin chute, coin return lever, etc. across the top of the machine, from left to right... I MIGHT have the one you're talking about in my garage - the damn thing's never worked! Bah!
