Never ceases to amaze me how crappy some of the pictures are on Craigslist. Yet the sellers expect to collect big bucks in many cases....

I was referring to the metal case the machine is sitting on - it has raised letters above the paper ad. Bill K

The "Edison" at the top is pretty clear, once you click on the photo to maximize it.

The "Victrola" comes out clearer using an online photo editor to enhance the quality:

Which begs the question, what is the stand from?

It looks to me as if only the "Edison" is raised letters. Is it me?
