Mounting pay phone

I have an Automatic Electric pay phone, circa 1953, and I would like to mount it on a phone booth, but cannot locate hardware for that purpose. Does anyone have an idea of what kind of hardware to use? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Welcome to the forums! Maybe if you could post a pix of the front and back, as well as what hardware there is in the phone booth, we can figure it out. Do you have the keys, and have you had it apart, yet? http://www.doityourself.com/forum/electrical-c-d-c/400914-how-put-pictures-your-post.html

Some pictures

There are 6 holes in the back of the phone for screws (or fasteners of some kind), and a variety of holes in the back of the enclosure, but I don't know what kind of screws to use. That's where I need the help. I don't have a key, and I have not attempted to open it up. Attachment 8083Attachment 8084Attachment 8085

You can use most any cabinet screw with a larger head, BUT if you cant open it, you can't mount it, bottom line. Time to contact a good locksmith.
