    The Beatles Suitcase Style Portadyne Original Phonograph Player (U.K. 1963/64). How often do you see this? The four-speed Beatles Portadyne Phonograph Player from the U.K. is one of the coolest pieces of memorabilia produced during the Beatlemania heyday. This example is even more scarce than the blue-cased four-speed from 1964. Closed cabinet measures approx: 11" by 13" by 6.5". Features wonderful images of the Fab Four with their facsimile signatures. Latches show wear (toning and soiling) and rust but still work.

    Made in England. The plug is not attached to the cord so we do not know if it's functional. However, other than normal wear and tear, and some staining, it does not seem to have been used very much. How cool would it have been to take this Beatles phonograph when you traveled, always ready to spin their latest hits for your friends and family? In overall Very Good to Very Good Plus condition. Will display well indeed. COA from Heritage Auctions. From the Connie and Dennis Dailey Monumental Beatles Collection.
