I have a couple of old Gamewell fire callboxes and some old brass nozzles. Are these worth anything or should I just scrap them? I collect old police stuff but not sure about this. Note to mods this is not an ad! Just trying to find out from our big red truck brothers if this is treasure or turds.

I picked up an old alarm box from a guy who dropped in at the firehouse to see if anyone was interested. Price was right. You might consider taking some pics and print them up to post on a station wall. Drop in on a couple of firehouses and introduce yourself.

FWIW I paid $100 for a complete box. May be a steal or too much. I couldn't tell you. Seemed fair to me. About 10 yrs ago.

I dont know what they go for but I would take a gamewell to hang on the wall in our firehouse. I think it would look neat

Any fire museums nearby? I'll bet they would gladly take them. Ours is so full of fire crap you can barely walk through.

Im trying to collect stuff to place around my bar. I have a collection of items that I have amassed over the years but am always looking for new stuff.

What I really want to do is find some old fire alarm pull switches. I want to take them and wire them in as my light switches for the bar. I think that would be a cool addition.
