What am I look at here? Something doesn't look right to me. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-EDISON- ... 1438.l2649

It looks like 2 or three phonographs in one listing. If this Edison A-275 is all original, that would be a good price. It's hard to tell with the conglomeration of pictures.'

What Harvey said.

The drawer is missing. The poster also noted problems with the finish. I've only ever seen one one of these in person and it had veneer issues as well. Still a very good price if you're local.

Harvey said, "It looks like 2 or three phonographs in one listing."

Indeed. The seller inadvertently uploaded two pictures of the Silvertone upright he is offering (eBay item # 322600317478) to illustrate his Edison A275 (eBay item # 222586311448). The pictures that don't belong with the Edison are the ones with the open cabinet showing the records inside (and the people's legs). I let the seller know.

Best wishes, Mark

I agree! The cabinet looks very nice to me -- other than the missing drawer -- and the motor plate isn't all that terrible to my eyes. And at $262.00, it seems a lot could be spent on putting it right, without exceeding its value...

Best,
Fran
