I realize it's not a radio. but I hope someone here can help me out. I have a beautiful Silvertone Tru-Phonic hand crank phonograph and I can't find any information on it. Any ideas where to look?

Tru-Phonic was Silvertone's version of Victor's Orthophonic and Columbia's Viva Tonal. Like the others, it was made for playing the new electrically recorded records that came out in 1925. They are great players and like the Orthophonic, have a lot of bass for an acoustic playback system. The reproducer will probably need to be rebuilt. None of the rubber gaskets survive 90 + years.
