Great condition For its age Working condition
plenty of photos to help with the description still dusty from years on display - uncleaned!The horn elbow is a newer replacement as the original has long since rotted away. The motor has number #1076 with patent pending stamped . The tone arm support bracket sags down (must be held up to play a record) , this is an original manufacturing & design fault that was rectified in the next model . There is no serial number on the reproducer , only a 'J '.The record hold-down is old but has been altered at some stage .The machine is strong , relatively quite and can play a record all the way through!
