Western Electric 195G

Western Electric 195G, 10 cent automatic prepay payphone or paystation. The first Western Electric payphone with a coin return bucket, the bucket was installed to prevent chute stuffing. This is not the normal WE bucket, it is very thin Bakelite and is shaped similar to those made by AE. The 195C has a coin return bucket but no coin return button. This antique telephone came from New York City.
