Fellas:

Definitely some good stuff on ebay and most people are reputable however, be careful as there are plenty of jokers on there who like to put "New York" on their listings when the items are  not authentic.

This is part of a very old FDNY alarm box....what is missing is the outer cover....it was known as a "double action" box since to activate it you would turn a crank on the outer cover then open the door & then pull down the handle which you see in the picture....these were all replaced by some point in the '60s w/the more familiar "Pull Handle" type boxes....the problem w/ the "double action" ones were that if a person did not (or could not" read the instructions & only twisted the outside handle/crank & heard the bell ring (to alert people in the area) then did not open the door & actually transmit the Alarm from inside nothing was sent to the FDNY........  http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ACME-FIRE-ALARM-CALL-BOX-NYC-TELEGRAPH-NOT-GAMEWELL-/161033314737?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item257e5561b1 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-ACME-FIRE-ALARM-CALL-BOX-NYC-TELEGRAPH-NOT-GAMEWELL-/161033314737?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item257e5561b1)

SOME BADGE INFO FROM A COLLECTOR SITE..... I am not sure if the New York State portion refers to only Police or FD also.... QUOTE.... Laws governing the sale of badges vary.

Federal law makes it illegal to possess a current-issue federal badge, unless it was issued to someone as a member of that specific service, such as the FBI or Secret Service.

While most states, including Pennsylvania, do not have laws governing the sale of state and local badges, a few do:

Texas bans selling Department of Public Safety or Texas Ranger badges.

Florida allows only active or retired police officers to buy badges.

New York state law prohibits selling a New York badge to a state resident, whether online or in person.....UNQUOTE.

Chief, That is a single action type Pull Box without the spade handle guard.The Frame looks like it was sanded down or painted as opposed to the Hindges and spade handle that were not.The raised letters give it credence as a legitimate head but I believe it was put together with spare pieces,  JMO here and it is not aluminum it is cast iron. The only aluminum Box the FDNY ever had was an NJR post

FDNY installed whistles on apparatus during WWII war years.  Units would respond with whistles instead of using sirens which might be confused with air raid sirens.  My father had a WWII-vintage rig with whistle in E 246/E327/L169 in old Sheepshead Bay firehouse.  Unit also used whistle to acknowledge attractive women.

H & L 159 had a Buckeye Exhaust Whistle Installed on their 1948 WLF. There was a Lieutenant that loved it. I was riding back to their qtrs with that Lt. and my Father was driving. You could only toot the whistle when changing gears. It was hooked up to the cab with a sash chain through the floor boards my Father would change the gears and the Lt. had me pull the chain. The siren was on the dash you pulled out the piano wire and the siren  went off when the wire went back into the dash you pulled it again. It's one of those things you never forget I remember it like it happened yesterday.

Buckeyes were used first during WWI (1918).

They were used again during the early Korean War for the last time. I remember them well. I don't agree with the description "shrill", which connotes high pitched. It was not like the shrill whistles on steam pumpers. Harsh and coarse would be better adjectives, almost like clearing your throat...but very very loud..

If you look at "Questions and answers about this item" you will see that Steven Scher posted some info about this

badge. Steven has some very good Photo books out on the FDNY. He is also quite knowledgeable about vintage

FDNY badges

Steve's photo book "FIRE" is excellent  & his history on the badge sounds correct....in the late '50s early '60s the Fire Line Badge had been replaced w/a Fire Line Card which was a red cardboard credit card size card....i still have mine in my memorabilia collection.

This is an original front from 1960 when the FDNY switched to the insert type frontpieces.... CPTs had a white front w/a white insert & black numbers for ENG & red numbers for LAD.....LTs had a white front w/the same insert a FF had there was no CPT or LT lettering......after awhile they went back to the straight fronts Officers use today........   http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cairns-and-Brothers-ENGINE-60-FDNY-Leather-Fire-Helmet-Front/331365540335?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D472a11de05a643998bdfc3bc5310d937%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D20131017132637%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D331365540335 (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Cairns-and-Brothers-ENGINE-60-FDNY-Leather-Fire-Helmet-Front/331365540335?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D472a11de05a643998bdfc3bc5310d937%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D20131017132637%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D331365540335)

OLD DOUBLE ACTION PEDESTAL BOX....3387 

I had bid on that box and was the high bidder but never met his reserve even with the $4,800 bid I  had put in.
Seemed the others who bid only managed to get it to $3,100 since that's where it ended.
The guy never responded to either of the 2-3 messages I had sent him, never relisted it and his selling history on Ebay looked pretty dormant.
I figured it would run me $1,000 to get it picked up and shipped to me so that's why I  left it at $4,800
I had one exactly like it in 1980 that I paid $750 for at an antique store but sold it a few years later, I know who has it today in fact.
I'm still looking for one of these later this year, right now a couple of other expensive purchases  have me short.
I'd like to know how these wind up on the market at all, I've even seen one in someone's garage in Kansas inthe background of a photo of something else the guy was selling.
I have the top of one made of aluminum, it never had the torch on it.

I have been recently buying slides of some great classic FDNY apparatus on eBay a lot of them from the Bicentennial years when the rigs were done up for the celebration. The slides are marked from the collection of J Calderone and Pete Lund and are very pricey for the busier company's from the period. Chief I picked up a nice one of 108's Seagrave tiller . Still not happy about loosing out on Mikes book that was listed a couple weeks ago . My max bid of $180 didnt win it

This is an old "double action" box.....these were later upgraded (in the late '50s / early 60's) by replacing the door w/the more common "spade handle" w/or w/out a guard....the reason was that some people trying to transmit an alarm would not or could not read the directions & would only twist the handle which would trigger an internal bell sound but unless the door was opened & the interior hook pulled down the alarm was not transmitted to the CO but because they heard the bell they mistakenly thought the alarm went in.....  http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-York-City-Fire-Department-Call-Box/252247813983?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D4328a766089b4850885d588dffed5cbd%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D311526704032

OUTRAGEOUSLY PRICED ALARM BOX...   http://www.ebay.com/itm/NYC-Call-Box-Fire-Alarm-box-NYFD-with-KEY-FDNY/321950751146?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3Dfb8205ae8ec047128ca989ec718271c6%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D321950751146

Not really, $6,000 and up is the going price on these, mine was $5,400, and several have sold for at least $7,000, mine was originally on a NJ antique salvage outfit's web site priced at $10,000


This pedestal in the auction came from a restaurant whose deceased owner had it on display with lots of other stuff and when the flood from the big storm hit the city a few years ago the restaurant was under 3-4 feet of water which means the fire alarm box was sitting in that dirty water too.
The guy who is trying to sell it bought it cheap at an auction of the restaurant contents, some auction outfit that sells off contents of restaurant equipment etc so you know no one but this guy bid on the box and his only interest in it was to kick it over for profit. There's no indication there's even any guts in the thing at all, it could be an empty shell, the guy has zero feedback too, not exactly inspiring to send $7,000 to!

When the city wins court approval to decommission the street boxes, likely hundreds of these will flood the market one way or another,  some salvage outfit will get a contract or pay the city scrap value to remove them as sidewalk obstruction/safety concerns, and offer them for sale.
The biggest issue is the weight, @ 900# these are not very viable to take them up to your apartment, most people lack the means to move something this heavy and if they have to hire people to do it it doesn't come cheap, neither does shipping.
I had mine shipped to Iowa from NC, it cost several hundred dollars for the freight alone, and about $300 for the UPSstore to go get it from the seller and palletize it, so the shipping all together ran me about $1,000 and the pedestal had an ERS door so I had to find a guarded spade handle door and guts separately, the door was about $250 and the guts about $250.

2nd photo is my pedestal, restored.

Only one judge has stood in the way and only because of the deaf, but as someone in the media reported- when the new cell phones come out that address that one issue, they are confident the court will approve the decommissioning.

Nice flat top box for a small cocktail table BUT the price is outrageous.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/Old-rare-Vintage-FDNY-FIRE-ALARM-PEDESTAL-CALL-BOX-Gamewell-Police/252220364775?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3Df0dc0815ff9647ffb15caebae6fc65f1%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D131681849737

LOL! I have a story to tell about THAT thing! it was one I bought a year ago on Ebay for  $383 , it's made of aluminum and appears to be a re-cast,  but it's severely damaged by a car strike, the box is out of square so badly the doors cant be shut and there's 2 cracks in the case. It never had a torch on it, the cast itself clearly showed that.

 I thought I might be able to repair it but it proved impossible and no weld would ever hold the amount of force it took me with 3 large bar clamps to even flex it enough the cracks could close,  so I stuck it on ebay and the clown who is trying to sell it now for a ridiculous $2500 bought it from me for under $300.
What is really funny is how he references a complete pedestal selling "recently" on Ebay for $7,000, to justify his $2500 price,  but $7000 is for  a COMPLETE 900# cast iron unit not a damaged empty shell of just the top  half!


 He also bought an O'Brien door from me for about $72 on Ebay after I had to relist it 4 times to get rid of it, and stripped the lock and hinges off it, put some primer on it and has been trying to get rid of the stripped door for $299 for the past year!

Here's some pics proving what I said:

2 photos, trying to see if I could flex it back into somewhat squareness so the doors might close, as soon as I let the clamps off it went right back out of square, it took hundreds of pounds of pressure, no weld could hold that.

wolff good info on the boxes & restorations ...i am glad you are keeping history alive w/restored FDNY Alarm Boxes however we NYC residents are fighting to keep the NYC Alarm Boxes working hopefully the ruling to remove them will never occur.....there is too much to re-type right now about the reasons why (aside from the deaf) many more but quickly the cell phone alternative has been proven time & again as a BS replacement for a tried & true alarm Box system... i hope the system in NYC gets back on line 100% & is fully maintained .....also the price in the original post is overpriced since back in the 1980's when original Boxes replaced by updated aluminum posts etc were sold by the ton under one of the Bridges on Water St at the DCAS yard one itself priced that high is amazing.....JMO.

Well you know, from what I've read the street boxes have about a 90 plus % false alarm rate, almost everyone today has a cell phone too. It would be nice to see the old boxes remain in use but the fact is the above plus many cities and towns have been removing their entire systems, I even see it with the FDNY where boxes once were  on lamp posts and wood poles in older Google Street views you now see the boxes are  completely gone, I only see that continuing as boxes get hit by vandals or cars, or no longer work they are being removed and not replaced.
I've seen many photos of boxes with their doors gone and just an empty shell remains, or a piece of plywood is strapped over the hole where the doors were.
What they are doing is removing them by neglect now one box at a time.

On the prices, yes, back in the 1980s that's how it was, in fact I bought one of the 7 foot 900# VF posts at an antique store on Spring street in 1980 for $750, and I bought one of the inner boxes at a FDNY auction for $10,  I bought a dozen other inner boxes on Canal St for $5 each, but that was 35 years ago, now there's a HUGE collector's fan base for all of this stuff, that $5 and $10 inner box now goes for several hundred dollars when you can find them, that $750 pedestal goes for $7,000, I see a Gamewell  stamped instructional brass key tag on Ebay going for almost $300 now due to the bidding on it,  and there's 6 days left to go- crazy! There's one guy who is bidding on every single FDNY item, including that silly key tag, he seems to be buying up everything he can get his hands on, since he has over 6,000 feedbacks he must be a rich collector of some kind, it only takes one like that to drive prices up.

I saw one oddball inner box sell recently for about $1200- that guy bought it, a pair of door hinges were selling for almost $100, the spade handle doors usually seem to sell for around $300 when you can find them, and that's the thing, there's a limited supply, these items are not made any more and more people getting into collecting these items.

in 1980 I paid $331 a month for my 1,000 sq ft loft on the 7th floor with a fantastic view at  Broadway at W Houston St in the Cable Building, back then my full time day job paid $5 an hour, now that same space rents for about $7500 a month so it's all relative and it's supply and demand.

I can see $5000 for a complete one of those pedestals, $7000 is asking premium price for what are usually incomplete units.

Once again ...cell phones are not a reliable replacement for working Alarm Boxes....cell phones have crashed on many occasions not just 9-11-01....a few examples were NYPD LOD Funerals where many Officers were on them ....the 2 tornadoes of 9-16-10....a tv report of an earthquake many states away not affecting NYC.....these are just a few & the Alarm box system was not affected (except certain areas during the NYC tornadoes)... also an ERS box can provide 2 way communication w/a Dispatcher.....the Dispatcher can also issue emergency instructions to a person or group of people w/in earshot of an ERS box....if a child escapes a burning house at 4 AM in pajamas they probably will not have a cell phone on them & the Alarm box may be their only way to get help.

You don't have to convince or "sell" this to me neighbor, I don't have an iron in that fire I moved out of NYC in 1984 it doesn't matter to me what they do in regards to the boxes and system, I'm just reporting what I've read abbout the whole thing and what I know about similar street box systems across the country- they have been and are being removed at a rapid constant rate, town by town city by city because the mechanical boxes are no longer made,  and parts can't effectively be just ordered off the shelf, the mainsprings on these get brittle with age and corrosion, and tend to snap without warning, when they do they often damage the mechanism. I had one of these main springs literally "explode" into dozens of short pieces in my hands just cleaning the mechanism with a soft brush.

 In addition, underground wiring on these boxes is usually original to the systems and many have failed due to corrosion, loss of ground, water infiltration, contractors accidentally severing an old wire etc.

Boston is an exception, they restored and have their system, but NYC is gunning HARD to get rid of theirs due to the tens of thousands of false alarms, the costs, lack of parts for the mechanical boxes.

All of the mechanical street boxes in Manhattan as I've read have been replaced with ERS/police/fire intercom doors, the deaf can't hear the speaker any better than a cell phone, I'm not even sure a blind person could find a box on the sidewalk at random.

Where Manhattan paved the road, the other boroughs are following, the mechanical guts of these are obsolete and being removed.
Even if they leave the red shell/pedestal/case all they have been doing since the mid 70s is putting in basically an intercom system with a speaker, the antique the boxes were have been all but destroyed by discarding the doors and mechanical guts and that's been going on since the 70s.
The era of the wind-up telegraph box was in the 1890s

I'm not even sure you can really call them fire boxes any more, they are more like intercoms to police/fire dispatch.

The fact is the city is going to do what the city is going to do, a few hundred protesting and writing letters is unlikely to change whatever the city decides to do, money talks and money is at the root of everything, it will all come down to costs and money with this issue and what some number cruncher at City Hall says needs to be done to save "x" dollars a year in a tight budget.

Here's some examples of what is going on all over the city, one box at a time the city is killing off the system,  these boxes are dead and won't be revived:

Well if you look at his feedback profile he bid on like 150 items in the last 30 days all in the one category, that's a rich, big time collector, or else someone planning to open up a store with inventory! He paid over $1200 for one inner box followed by a few other high ticket items in rapid succession,  you'd have to have plenty of money to afford a buying spree like that and bid on 150 different items in 30 days, I see his bids on almost everything, including a couple of items I outbid him on :)

Nice find, congrats!
I'm the one who bought the other door, first one I've ever seen come up for sale anywhere, and the bidding was fast and furious and I'm glad to get the door, I had an $1800 bid in on it so essentially I made sure no one else was going to out bid me on that :)

  3378 was only 6 blocks away from the pedestal I owned in 1980 with the same door- #3393.

3378 will go on my pedestal I bought last summer  (#4788) that I had installed a "peek-a-boo" door on to replace the electronic plate it had,  I wasn't happy with how the guard on that style is so jammed up close to the spade handle that you can't get your fingers over the top of the handle but have to grab it from underside. The 2 coil springs they used on this guard were really poor, they have a couple of holes the ends fit into to hold them in place but they don't want to stay there and they didn't work well at all, so I left the springs out.

I get the impression the guard is a jury rigged add-on since they are held on with 4 machine screws from the back and if the guard is removed the door is a typical spade handle door. I don't know if they made the doors this way specifically with the peek-a-boo guard, or if they were all add-ons to existing doors, or a combo of both.

 The later, larger guarded style with the lock on the left requires drilling and tapping 2 machine screws in the cast iron shell for the lock catch, which I didn't want to do.
Then this double action door appeared and it has the same 3 holes per hinge bolt pattern my pedestal has.

Now I'll probably  machine another new code wheel for the this, but now for the 3378 door plate since I doubt the two door plates' 4 mounting pin holes match up so perfectly they would just swop out, and I don't want to start drilling new holes in an antique casting.
 Making the  code wheel to match the door plate and fit the Stewart Steel movement will be better.

I believe these 4 doors are in the order they appeared on the streets,, with the left door being the original 1929 door, what I'll call  first generation doors, followed by it's replacement the plain spade handle door- second generation, which was replaced by the peek-a-boo door (retrofitted guard?)  the third generation, and lastly by the larger guard whose casting was specifically made for the guard, the change required relocating the lock to the left side, which meant every VF pedestal with it had to have the lock catch installed with 2 machine screws.

The base appears to have been reused from the older design, and they changed the upper half with the 1929 model.

the peekaboo was a quick retrofit so as to make it a "double action" to pull an alarm.   many of them were not done particularly neat, as nobody really cared, as long as it worked.  I redid three of them, filling in the holes with steel stik, and redrilling them properly.   the order of doors you show above is correct.   I had a snipe of a little over 2000. on the keyless door.  fortunately the other one showed up and I cancelled the snipe bid.

That confirms what I suspected, it definitely has an "added-on" retrofit look to it and the 4 machine screws from the back were a good clue.
I'm guessing there was a jig of some kind used in the field to drill the hole pattern. The guard handle itself is a lot lighter weight than the later one.

  the order of doors you show above is correct. 

I kind of pieced together the order of the 4 doors from what I've seen and read and I was pretty sure it was right. So far I haven't seen any dates firmly associated with each door style, but it seemed like the original 1929 doors didn't stay long due to the issue with the local bell causing people to walk away thinking the alarm was sent in, I'm sure quite a few stayed around on some boxes for many years later, but I'm guessing around 1935-1940 the spade handle doors were being put in, and maybe by 1945 the peek-a-boo retrofits started, and by 1950 the larger integral guard with the lock moved to the side was put in.
A 1950 popular science magazine article has a VF pedestal featured inside and out and it's cover photo had that larger guard on the door which dates those to 1950 or before.

I actually like that style best, maybe because it was the one that I always saw on every box growing up as a kid in Greenwich Village in the 70s, the plain spade handle door I like the least, I have all 4 styles now.

I had a snipe of a little over 2000. on the keyless door.  fortunately the other one showed up and I cancelled the snipe bid.

Yeah, that's the thing with antiques, you never how many or few there are out there, or when one will come up for sale, and  alot of Ebay selelrs seem to think an item is "extremely rare" because they personally never saw one, but there could be thousands of an item just like it, and some farmer could have 100 sitting in his barn and dies and his family comes in and suddenly 100 of the things wind up on the market!

The door I got seems to be part of a fair sized collection that was being sold off by the family of an older father-in-law's collection that had been in storage probably for years, they don't even seem to know what he has and they are still digging out stuff to dispose of.

You lucked out with the cheaper door, but then you probably picked it up privately via word of mouth thru the grapevine, or at a physical fire antique type sale/trade/auction event etc., I don't go to those since I don't like long distance traveling so I'm not going to hop in my car and drive 600 miles to go to some antique fire equipment sale event is taking place.

The door I bought apparently the gear is worn a bit, the pedestal I had in 1980 was that way, if you turned the handle a little too fast it skipped teeth on the gear due to wear and play in the mechanism, since I have access to a machine shop and milling machines I can restore this one however it needs to be done so it works properly, the mechanism is pretty crude  to begin with, but until it gets here I think the hole the handle shaft goes through is probably worn and that is the cause of the malfunction, usually a bushing works for that type of issue.
I'm guessing the doors simply had a hole drilled in them for the shaft, no bushing or bearing was used and the shaft was wearing metal against metal every time the handle was used and no one ever greased or oiled that contact area too.

From the Faraday catalogue 1928 they show a spade handle door on a common "O'Brien" style lamp post mounted box,  but I've never seen a Faraday box in NYC, certainly not as pictured with that large oval "FARADAY" logo or the name on the bottom, could be some of that was just for the illustrations.
The inside of the door with the bell looks identical to what I have and have seen, and it looks like they offered a choice of cast iron and aluminum for the shells, I've only seen the aluminum ones.

no.  I got the door on ebay.  buy it now...

Oh boy, a seller who had no clue or idea! I've wound up with a few really good items that way in recent months, especially people who go to estate sales and garage sales and seem to buy a truckload of junk to resell and they put arbitrary prices on the stuff because they have no idea or time to research every item.
When you look at their other items for sale you just find a crapload of unrelated junk, baby strollers, microwave ovens, old prints, china etc. and their pages often mention something about the item coming from "an estate sale" and that they don't know if the item is complete, works etc.
The ones I like are those who claim "100% original and complete" and you look at the photos, of say, a door for one of the pole mounted FDNY boxes, and you can clearly see the missing door bell and windup mechanism and where the mounting screw holes are and it should be obvious to anyone that something was attached there, and it isn't now, so it's NOT "100% original and complete."

I received my 3 recent purchases today, all looks good. The double action doors' gear does have tooth wear as does the  escapement's 2 teeth, it looked like they were not in alignment for many years as the escapement wore the edges of the teeth at a slight angle. The two parts were not parallel with one another for many years as well, so the wear left a small amount of metal intact on the face edge, but I believe after I  tape out the pin in the handle shaft and take it apart and clean it up I'll have a better idea what I need to do.
Adding metal on the escapement likely won't be a good fix since the gear's teeth are worn.

The escapement turned out to be aluminum, looked like nickel plated brass but it's not.

I can machine a new escapement if I had to, the large gear could be done but a lot more involved, it's going to be a project and it will probably find a place on some pages in the book I'm writing too.

The LAD*130 front is the early style used in the FDNY after they changed fronts around 1960.....as pictured a LT had a White background & the same insert as a FF (red for LAD & Black for ENG) a CPT had a white background & a white insert W/numbers matching the Unit colors (Red LAD & Black ENG).....a few years later they discontinued the insert for Officers & started using a solid front w/title & "painted" axe or bugle...awhile after the axe/bugle became a stick on like today......the 130 Helmet/Front looks legit i am not sure about  the LAD*22 front ..that looks a little strange.

Doesn't look like the "22" front piece is FDNY. Maybe bought on the outside and not at the "Union Store" that used to be at Pier A.

The TWO frontpieces. ( L 130 & L 22 ) are both fakes.

THEY ARE NOT FDNY ITEMS
