This Victor R is among the more desirable of front-mounted disc phonographs, not because it is a rare, luxury model, but in fact because it is a rare, cheap model. Indeed, the R may have been called a Victor "Royal" in the sales literature, but the price was a low-end $15. Today, collectors seek this model's small size, copper-oxidized metal fittings, and overall "cuteness". This example is in fine working condition, with original Exhibition long-throat reproducer, original horn and elbow, even most of the patent label on the bottom. Turntable felt replaced. Complete with a selection of 5" records and needles.
