Here are some of my EE-91 phones and my BE-63 phone box which was intended for use by the coast artillery.  I have mounted one of the phones in the box with a HS-30 headset and T-26 chest microphone.  I'm hoping to find a T-17-A headset/microphone assembly like this one day.....

First post should read HS-17-A, not T-17-A...  My bad!

That is awesome, thanks for sharing. I have an EE-91 myself, now I have to find that box to go with it.

I hope you find one.  They are a bit hard to come by but do pop up in odd places from time to time.  One of ones in the Fort MacArthur museum in San Pedro, CA, was found next to the post swimming pool.  I'd love to get one of the pre-WW2 cast iron phone boxes as well but those are even more difficult to find for sale.  There are a few scattered around the Presidio of San Francisco but the vandals and environment haven't been kind to them.
