I've decided to let go of another machine that will just never find a space in the new place once we move... a fairly scarce electric VE-XVII (only about 2500 were produced)... the mahogany cabinet retains it original finish and is really in quite exceptional condition, the gold plated hardware is very nice and the gold plated No. 2 reproducer has been rebuilt. The power cord was badly frayed when I found this, I can include it if you like. I haven't gotten around to cleaning/rebuilding the motor, which powers up but doesn't run at present (I've been told that some basic cleaning should resolve this). I'd like $650 for this, which I think is a really fair price considering the condition.

This is located in southern NJ near Philadelphia and can be picked up, or I can bring it to the October Wayne antique phonograph show. If interested, you can message me or email brianu73 at hotmail.

I'll take and post some photos over the next few days - I thought I had some on my phone but must have erased them.

Some quick photos.

Again, this is a very clean, but unrestored and untouched original. It came out of a house last year, but I just haven't had any time to do much with it.

It's complete as well, I just have the components removed as I kept planning to start working on it.

Also, I'd totally forgotten about the great NYC dealer plate, as well as the super low serial number in the 600s!

Thanks

As I noted in the post, the hardware and motor board have been removed because I've been intending to start working on this for a few months now, but just haven't been able to find the time... it's complete, everything is there, this stuff is just in the work area right now, I'll snap a photo of it when I get a minute.
