1903 Victor “D” Phonograph With Concert Sound Box & Original Victor Spear Tip Horn
No Sales Tax If Shipped Outside North Carolina.
Introduced by Victor in 1902, the “D” was the company’s flagship phonograph until the VI came into the line-up three years later. The “D” featured a 12″ turntable, a triple spring motor, and an ornate, dark oak cabinet adorned with heavily carved trim. When new, it sold for $60, about two month’s wages for the average American worker.
This Victor D is immaculate, with no replica parts, no replacement parts, no damaged parts, no repaired parts.
Solid oak cabinet retains its original finish and it’s still silky smooth, with no issues. Victor data tag is clean, complete and legible. All of the heavily carved “gingerbread” trim is original and undamaged. Complete original paper license is still affixed to the underside of the baseboard.
Back-bracket enamel is clean and original, as are the decorations.
Clean mechanism, clean turntable, clean original crank. Victor Concert reproducer has a good needle bar, a good diaphragm, and it sounds great too.
Original Victor Spear Tip oak horn is in spectacular condition and has a nearly perfect original Nipper decal and a clean original finish. No splintered wood, no warping, no rim splits, no restoration, no repair. Clean collar with nice original nickel-plating. Patent data is blind-stamped into the metal and still legible.
Runs well and sounds great. You will not find a better Victor D anywhere.
