RARITY: ¤¤ VALUE ¤
The VV 1-6 portable was introduced in the summer of 1926 as Victor's lowest priced portable model. It had a black wood case, with a single spring motor. Sound was radiated from the front grille opening. It used a Victrola No. 4 Soundbox, which was designed to improve upon the performance of the older No. 2 soundbox. The 1-6 was produced for a relatively short period, ending late in 1927. It did not feature Orthophonic reproduction.
The original 1926 selling price of the VV 1-6 was $25.00. An estimated total of 16,700 Victrola 1-6's were produced, making it one of the rarer portable models. However, a general lack of collector interest in portable Victrolas restricts the current valuation of this and similar models.
