$4,500.00

No Sales Tax Charged For Orders Shipped Outside North Carolina

Beautiful 1909 Victor V disc phonograph with a matching original Victor Spear Tip horn.

Condition is excellent, and the phonograph runs well. Nickel-plated 3-spring motor and gearing (same one used in the Victor VI), and a bearing-cased sub-platter (also, same one used in the Victor VI). Governor is working properly, and the speed is steady. Plays multiple sides with a single winding.

Oak cabinet retains its original finish, and it’s exceptional. Data plate is clean and legible. Scarce Lyon & Healy tag is likewise clean and legible. Corner columns and capitols are original and undamaged. No missing molding, no damaged trim.

Back-bracket enamel is original, as are the decorations. Blue highlights are still prominent, and the Japanned finish is still clean.

Clean mechanism, clean turntable, with clean original felt.  Exhibition reproducer has a good diaphragm and is loud and dynamic.

Original Victor Spear Tip horn is outstanding, with no damage, no repairs, no spliced in sections, no splintered wood, no warping, no rim splits, no issues. Clean collar with nice original nickel-plating. Patent data is blind-stamped into the metal and still legible. Nipper decal is an older replacement, essentially indistinguishable from the original decal. Overall, this is one of the nicest Spear Tip horns you’re likely to encounter, and as you can see in the photographs, the golden oak finish is almost identical to that of the phonograph, so you get a perfect match, not a forced marriage.
