This is a truly beautiful example of a 10-50x. Stored indoors its entire life, I acquired it from the great-granddaughter of the original owner. I believe it was purchased in North Carolina originally. I am in Richmond Virginia and it is kept at my home. All seven pot metal parts have been replaced with newly manufactured parts. PM me for details if you are interested in where the parts came from and if you would like pictures of the new parts. It is fully adjusted and a YouTube video exists which can be viewed by clicking on the link below. I would like to entertain offers from collectors who wish to keep it and add it to their collection. I am simply looking to get back what I have in it and hopefully a little extra for the effort. The longer I have this playing in my home however....the harder it is going to be to part with it :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-l0OJcjwJo

Please PM me to discuss the price. I have about $1,500 in it, and about 20 hrs of restoration. You fine folks know more than me of what it is worth, so I would simply like to get back my investment and maybe a little for the effort. Thanks for looking and please ask any questions you like. I have about 6 good tungs-tone needles for her, and am trying to get more to go with the purchase before it's sold. Got to have them for this particular player.

I've seen some models that have a decal behind the changer on the back wall, and many without. Not sure if it was a feature only on during a certain run period. This does not have a decal, and I see no evidence that there ever was one.

To my knowledge, every Victor machine had a decal. That was there marking. If the decal is missing, then it has more than likely been removed or it is a reproduction back.

Something else I did notice in your picture is that I see no loop on the top of the record loader shaft? There were two types. The early version with a loop attached to the shaft on the loader. The later version was one piece construction with an arrowhead type tip for connecting to the loader. The top of the loader shaft looks to blunt for the arrowhead version. Is the loop there?

There should also be a decal inside the player compartment door with instructions on it (also a decal) and that seems to not be there. The finish seems kind of light compared to all the 10-50s I've seen, so perhaps this was refinished at some point in its life.
