Today, Jenny and I went to A-D & D Antiques in Council Bluffs, IA which is only open on Saturdays and is owned by this older gentleman who seemed very knowledgeable. He had a nice selection of phones and I spotted what is no doubt a Western Electric 202. From reading this awesome guide, it looks like mine was made in 1936. Also, on the inside it says “TEL. CO. PROPERTY” because people used to rent their phones from the telephone company.
Total spent today: $150
