So, I recently picked up a 1950 RCA Victor Victrola Radio Phonograph Combination model # A-106
I have the original manual with the original schematics and spare fuses and needles. This unit works completely...all lights and sounds, record player works on both speeds and the smaller record player is fine as well.
This unit is not restored and looks almost brand new....the finish is a beautiful cherry wood finish- the wood has no blemishes except for a couple of marks and a little wear on one of the edges on the bottom of the unit....otherwise, they are hard to see. Looking at the unit it looks like it was restored.
I picked this unit up at an estate sale for $50...I couldn't believe they were selling it for that but it wasn't theirs so they didn't care. The house was full of 40's and 50's furniture and what not...very nice things..either way, this unit is legit and must be worth a good amount due to the unbelievable shape this thing is in...only gets compliments and oohhs and ahhhs when people see it.
Is there anyone that can help me understand the rarity of this piece and what it might be worth and wheather I should keep it or sell it.
