Coinjock was one of the older COs in the N&CT&T area and still had a group or two of TPL Strowger connector switches. These were unique as they used the last three digits of the dialed number, the last digit determining the ring code for the party line. As many of the party lines had been converted to private lines, you can see a great many Coinjock numbers in the 1963 directory ended in the digit 1. Later directories in my collection have all Albemarle Area listings in one big list. The 1963 directory has seperate listings for each town as that was before the metro EAS was created.
