Nice machine and record box, but the elbow is rather disturbing... :? :roll:
31 Berliner records in an original box, is a great find by itself...

That sounds about right for the machine, the storage box and 31 Berliner records... except for the buyer's premium...

Math wasn't my strong point in school, but I believe that $6000 plus 25% would total $7500.

A very strong price for the package, I think.

Wow! That looks just like my box with records though mine has only 25 in it. I've never actually seen another. Did anyone here get it? I'd love to find out which records the box contained.
