What do you think of this, and how much do you think I should pay for it if I decide to make the owner an offer?

Oh, and one other question. The knobs indicate "phonograph". Does anyone have a pic of the phonograph? The owner says it doesn't have one, but I'm not certain they know where to look. Thanks.

I have one of those that I bought maybe 6 or 7 years ago. I paid about $100 but that was from Willie so I knew it would be a good one. No phono came with it. There really is no place for that in the model I have. Brunswich 2689.

There are pics of the 2689 several places on-line, but they are a different configuration than this one. The 2689 also has a tuning eye.

I'm going to correct myself. The owner just sent me a pic of the label, and it DOES say 2689. However, it appears that even though the model is the same number, there were completely different chassis for it., And different chassis meant different configurations. So the M27 chassis was six tube, 6V filaments, with a tuning eye. The M31 chassis was 6 tube, 12V and 35V filaments, without a tuning eye. However, the knob and push button configuration is different on this model, than either the M27 or the M31 chassis. So there must have been a 3rd chassis produced.

I too have one of these and paid about the same price 10 years ago. No, there is no place to put a phonograph in this cabinet unless you set it on top.

Some of the Brunswick models like this did have a phonograph.
But they typically have the name "Panatrope" on them.

Right. But that Panatrope is Duncan Phyfe, while the 2689 is Mersman (it's really great what you can find on the internet. Imagine 30-40 years ago trying to come up with info on these).
