Used Phonecards Please

12 Pins51 Followers
Back when BT Phonecards were being used up and down the country. BT placed a bin underneath the payphone for all the used cards. Of course for collectors these were a potential goldmine of new and possibly rare cards for their collection.
"I have had a Boehringer Mannhein card, (Hitachi 911) 1991 issue. Used. It has been in my wallet all that time so is quite rubbed but legible. It was given to my husband when they got a new Hitachi in the lab!" Really nice to hear the stories behind the cards.
