1903 Victor D Phonograph With Original Victor “J” Horn
No Sales Tax If Shipped Outside North Carolina.
Introduced by Victor in 1903, the “D” was the company’s flagship phonograph until the VI came into the line-up two 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 original throughout, and it’s in excellent condition, with no replica parts, no replacement parts, no damaged parts, no repaired parts. Nothing has been refurbished or restored.
Solid oak cabinet retains its original finish. Victor data tag is crisp. All of the heavily carved “gingerbread” trim is original, and no sections are damaged or missing.
Back-bracket enamel is clean and original, and the decorations are vibrant.
Clean mechanism, clean turntable, clean original crank. Victor Exhibition reproducer has a good needle bar, a good diaphragm, and it sounds great too.
Original Victor “J” horn is in excellent condition, with smooth original paint, and no significant dings or dents. Nice original Nipper decal.
Runs well and sounds great. You will not be disappointed.
