All of the common MULTI-PHONES are the post-war model and were used until 1959. Apparently after the war Ken Shyver's had all of the MUSIC-PHONES melted down for scrap.

 

 

Multi-Phone - Post-War Model, used up to 1959

Pictures and info: Rick Botts, Jukebox Collector Magazine: "Ken Shyvers is most famous for the Shyver "Multiphone". The customers placed a dime in the chrome "multiphone" and ordered their song over the telephone which was built into the unit. A (mostly) female operator then played the record on a turntable in the Central Music studio which could be heard over the loudspeaker at the bottom of the wallbox. The design of the Multiphone may have been influenced by the Empire State Building.

Shyvers Multi-Phones Jukebox wall speaker - UNIT NO-5A

Shyvers Multiphone Shyvers Multiphone
Made by Ken C. Shyvers in 1974 for his nephew (Gene Person).

It is not known if more speakers were Bulit back in the 40s and 50s to go with the Multi-Phone systems but you would think he did since Ken Shyvers had the parts to make this one for his nephew in '74.

The speaker is 10" in diameter. The speaker grill is 1/8" thick aluminium and the lettering is engraved or stamped into the metal and was painted red. The cabinet is made from plywood and looks like at one time was painted silver.

It is not known how rare this Shyvers Speaker is. The only thing one can be certain of is that is was made personally by Mr. Shyvers for his nephew as a souvenir. Gene said his uncle took him to his warehouse where much of the equipment for Central Music was stored. 
He said his uncle thought it would come back but instead all of the equipment became obsolete junk as the world changed around him.
