The Gray Type 24, AKA “The Wanamaker Phone”. This is a complete portable paystation. Like a desk stand it incorporates the hook and contacts with the receiver and transmitter wiring. This unit would have to be connected to the line by means of a subset. The transmitter at the top picks up the sound of the coin signals in order for the operator to hear them. This is also the talk transmitter, as you can see a carry handle fits neatly around it. The body is made of aluminum which is lighter than if it was cast iron.
