Ran across this probably restorable VV-8-35 on Craigslist in Weare, NH. The price is low, the reproducer's missing, BUT it includes a full set of books, most of which are in very good condition. Screws appear to be missing from the motorboard, so there may have been monkey business under the hood, but still, the grill and its cloth are good, the bracket seems to be okay (maybe), and...the books. The ever-elusive books.

I'd sell mine for far less. Most of the original albums, and all the reproduction spines to restore the originals to presentable condition. Just sayin'.
