Up for sale is a vintage microphone we purchased in the late 80's. We understand it was being used as a stage prop in Milwaukee. While it appears to be an RCA 4-AA-1, there are three obvious differences. 1) The back is not a separate piece, so no amplifier unit is inside. 2) There is no ID plate on the top. 3) While the condenser unit fits tightly in place, there are no securing screws. The finish had had obvious touch-ups (if the bronze bottom color is correct, then all of the black is not original). The 1-A stand is labelled "F9". No one we have shown this to is an expert in vintage mikes, so opinions vary and may totally off base. It has been suggested that this was either a sales display or perhaps a 4-AX extension microphone meant to be attached to a remote amplifier.
