The VV-105 was a mid-priced "redesigned" upright Victrola, introduced in 1923.  This model featured an enlarged horn opening, nickel plated hardware, and a two-spring motor. The lid was also flattened to modernize the instrument's appearance. The 105 was available in oak, mahogany or walnut finishes; however, the vast majority of these machines were made in mahogany. 

The original 1923 selling price of the 105 was $180.00. An estimated total of 11,585 hand-wound Victrola 105's  were produced. Production of the VV-105 was ceased in 1924; however it remained in the Victor catalog through the first half of 1925. 

A total of 3 VE-105's (Electric) were shown as being produced; however, insufficient data exists to correlate serial numbers to production date for these electric versions.
