Other than hundreds of old, corroded discarded needles, the only things I've found inside a phonograph were a couple of sheets of newspaper from the Washington Post dated 1923, a couple of Wheat cents, and a Mercury dime.

In the late nineties I bought my Aeolian Vocalion upright, a nice period, still unidentified, model. A serendipity story on itself...
When opening the machine for examination and cleaning, etc, I found two sapphire ball needles for use with vertical records. It was nice, for the tonearm in this machine is of the revolver type, and it's the only machine with which I can play Pathé records.
I will open a new thread on this machine, because I'm in bad need of a replacement tonearm, and also to find out which model it is...
