This circa 1931 BLACK HMV 102 portable mechanical gramophone is certainly in near Mint Collectors condition. It belongs to a former enthusiast who has looked after it. It is the early 1930's manufactured 102 version with the first auto-bake system introduced by HMV and a faultless No. 16 sound-box. It runs smoothly & quietly and plays clearly & well. The automatic brake system stops the record on ending (if the record has a run out groove). The original No.16 sound-box is in brand new perfect condition (see photographs). I have never seen such a pristine condition machine on or elsewhere & I believe it is because it has seldom been used during its life. This is evidenced by the high chrome finish to all the metalwork, even to the case screws, the brown grained metal motor board, arm & various mechanisms (see photograph illustrations). The case is also fabulous & finished with attractive painted corner protectors. Its feet are intact and there are no obvious scuffs anywhere to the Rexine cover. It has its original record storage tray intact & unscratched. See all photographs, which form part of the condition description. You will see a virtually immaculate near mint condition case and machine. She will be a credit to own & plays superbly too with an incredible tone from the fantastic condition sound-box. I am certain this machine will increase in value because of its rare condition with investment asset potential. It comes with scanned copy lubrication chart too.
Condition: As described, save for a scratch to the tone chamber exit, which can be clearly seen on photos. This does not detract from the appearance and there is nothing else to point-out. Magnificent collector’s piece.
