    Vintage Edison C-250 Diamond Disc Phonograph. Introduced in December, 1915, at a retail price of $250.00 (hence the model number), the Diamond Disc C-250 was Edison's answer to the Victrola and quite popular with the public, boasting various oak cabinet styles designed to match middle-class decor and featuring gold-plated hardware and record storage drawers. The Diamond Disc phonograph was offered in a variety of models from late 1912 to 1927, and the records were sold until October 1929, when the company closed its doors just days before the stock market crash. This vintage model (year unknown) features two compartments with wooden dividers for storing up to 72 discs, a key that locks the turntable and record compartments, and its original serial number plate (JM-65146) is still affixed within the turntable compartment. Still in working order, it is in overall Very Fine condition with some nicks and scrapes to the cabinet -- mostly to the rear top and bottom edges -- a little tarnishing, and heavy discoloration to the felt turntable pad from age.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
