condition: excellent
make/manufacturer: Berliner
model name/number: Gramophone

I have oiled the motor and put two new gaskets in the reproducer. Other than that, this is 100% correct from horn to crank. The oak case is excellent and has the original finish and Berliner sticker on the side. The motor works just as it should and the speed control operates fine. The only flaws I see are, the crank has a half moon wore place about half way up. Its not bad enough to ever effect the crank at all. Also the brake has the little round leather stop missing. The leather elbow has hardened and the hole has drawn together. The horn and reproducer still fit the elbow good but the hole between them doesn't look like it would let much sound through.There may be a way to soften this up or it can be replaced. The horn is real decent with some scratches and paint loss
