Hello all,

I spotted a Columbia portable phonograph recently and I believe it to be a 140 model, but I wasn't sure. How common are these machines?

Thanks in advance.

I spotted your response on this thread: viewtopic.php?f=9&t=8807

In answer to your question, yes, the 140 is pretty rare. They were only in production for a year or two before the Viva-Tonal models took over. I've never come across one.

Here's an interesting video of a 140 in action -- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTyxESkJGu0

OrthoFan, thank you for the information! I know this is a difficult question to answer, but what is a rough figure as to what they are worth?
Thank you again.

If I wanted to buy the one in the photo, I'd offer no more than $75-$100, providing the motor works and there are no pot metal issues. If I was selling it, I'd start out asking $150.
