VV 1-6


Proceed to Rarity and Value Analysis Page

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.

No detailed breakdown of serial numbers is yet compiled.
