Public Coin Box using
Boxes, Coin Collecting No. 14 - No. 14DD and No. 14G


The Box, Coin-collecting, No. 14 superseded the Box, Coin-collecting, No. 13.  This box introduced a new style plug and socket system for the Mechanism and an internal Bellset.  This arrangement meant that the box was effectively self contained with no need for any external equipment except the telephone instrument.

The Bellset used was dependant on the type of exchange the coin box was connected to.

As a telephone was used there was no use for the receiver or hook switch on the side of the casing.  Some of these early cases were reused and in these cases the hook switch slot was just filled in and can probably still be seen under the paint.
