Victor Vi In Mahogany 1908 Good Original Cond. For Sale123456789This has been in my family for a long time. Mom downsized and gave this to me. Now I am downsizing ... Here we have a 1908 Victor Victrola IV with, what I believe to be, the more rare mahogany cone and cabinet. Chances are if you are looking at this, you know more about it than I do. This has always been kept in the house as a cherished and valued item, and it is in dusty but excellent used condition. Yes, when we were kids we would wind it up with the hand crank (it's NOT electric) and play records on it. We had a big box of records (from comedy to Souza marches). I think it still works. The last time I cranked it up it worked. In the 1970s we had to find needles for it. I think we ended up going to a sewing machine repair place for a certain type of needle. Anyway. Here it is. LOCAL PICKUP AND DELIVERY ONLY.On Apr-21-13 at 17:28:01 PDT, seller added the following information:
TWO NOTES: First, please understand that I will work with buyers from outside the Seattle/Tacoma area to have this item shipped. I will deliver the item to a shipping business of the buyer's choice within a reasonable area. Second, as to condition, please note one small scuff on the edge of the horn. The horn is lighter than you would anticipate and has a slight dusty or dry feel. Please expect that inside will be extremely dusty. It has not been opened in recent memory. The phonograph works well as shown in the video and sounds quite wonderful.On Apr-24-13 at 16:16:30 PDT, seller added the following information:
ONE MORE NOTE ON SHIPPING: I worked up a round number on shipping from my home in Tacoma, WA to the middle of Michigan. You have two boxes that are about 24" squares, one weighing approx. one lb (the horn) and other weighing about 20 lbs (the turntable). My local Fed Ex said about $25 per box for packing, a little under $200 for shipping. Total = $250.
I will work with the winning buyer on shipping. I will probably recommend Fed Ex just because I can guarantee safe delivery. You may have to trust me a bit (and I you) but I assure you that I will make this work and that I will get this machine to you.
I have done 40 transactions with 100% positive. I think I can do this.
