RARITY: ? VALUE: ?
The VV 4-30 was produced by Victor for sale solely for the Canadian market. It was a floor phonograph with a small Orthophonic horn, with a 2-spring motor and walnut finish. It was the lowest price Orthophonic machine sold in Canada, and measured only 34 inches in height, and had no "doors" on the front to control the volume of playback. It sold new for $95.00 CDN with a spring wound motor (an electric version was not offered). It was introduced in 1927 and discontinued around 1929. It is likely that most of this machine was manufactured at Victor's plant in Montreal, as it is a unique model to the Canadian market.
Production numbers for this model are unknown, but it is not assumed that this was a very popular model at the time.
