The Columbia BO was also known as the 'Invincible,' but apparently very few were made and not very many still exist. With an extended mandrel, this machine is capable of playing the standard 2-minute cylinders and the 6-inch ones. According to records, this example is from the 1908 era. With an oak cabinet, black enameled bedplate, beautiful nickel panel horn, it's a stunner! Ships safely in two boxes anywhere in the U.S. or internationally.
