This is a Victor Type E Phonograph circa 1903, Serial #53242. It is in Near Mint Condition as can be seen in the photos. The Original Finish is in Excellent Condition with light alligatoring consistent with age. The Original Nickel is in Excellent Condition and is Nice and Bright.
The turntable retains its Original Felt. The Original Victor Tag is Clear and Bright.The patent applied for Original Horn is virtually dent free and still retains its original paint. The Brass Bell has been professionally straightened and polished. The Original Back Bracket Decals and Striping really Glow.
I have installed new replacement f. Eet on the underside of the cabinet. The two-spring motor has been properly lubricated and runs smooth and true, surprisingly quiet for an early bevel-edge. The Original Concert Reproducer has been professionally rebuilt by Wyatt Markus, including new diaphragm, new gaskets, and a new back flange and plays Excellent as can be heard in the video.
The only negatives that I can see are weak nickel on the left side of the horn elbow, and the replacement original crank which I had to polished off the rust. Early Original Victor Type E machines are rarely found in this kind of condition. Thank You and Good Luck, Zwebie.
Dimensions of the cabinet are: 10 3/4" wide by 10 15/16" deep by 5 1/2 tall. The horn is 9 5/8" in diameter, and the turntable is 8" in diameter.
