Post subject:  My first phonograph

Este foi meu primeiro fonógrafo de tocar cilindros, um Columbia modelo AT com última patente de 1897. Nunca foi restaurado, está todo original com exceção da corneta e do reprodutor, tinha vendido à uma amiga e tentado comprar de volta inúmeras vezes. Não é que neste sábado ela me ligou para me oferecer de volta? Bem vindo ao lar...

Nice machine!

It's a Type A, though, not an AT.

Curioso pois a plaqueta indica o modelo AT...o que pensar?

This is an original, early AT. The earliest ones used a model A case and lid.

Translation:
This was my first cylinder phonograph, a Columbia model AT, last patent 1897. It has never been restored, it is all original except the horn and reproducer. I had sold it to a friend and tried to buy it back numerous times. Last Saturday she called to offer it back to me. Welcome home...

Thanks Harvey Kravitz for clarifying, I had read something about it but I did not remember, that's exactly it.
Thank you also to all the generous comments.

Post subject:  Early-case Columbia AT

I also have such a machine, an early AT in a A-style case. The serial on mine is 208166. It has the Sears Roebuck overlay on the bottom right corner of the banner, which George Paul has dated to a very specific and rather narrow band of time that I have now forgotten and didn't write down.

If we can get him to tell us again, here, we will all know - plus I'll be able to copy it down and put it inside the machine.

I think the A and early AT therefore only differ in the configurations of their motors, where the A has no spring barrel and the AT does. The A has a different serial number sequence, with an example having sold on ebay recently with s/n 79467.

I wonder whether the serial numbers for the early AT started at 200,000? I just can't see them making more than 206,000 to get to the one shown in this thread, considering how rarely the early style shows up today.
