VV 5-30 / VE 5-30
RARITY: ? VALUE: ?
The VV 5-30 was produced by Victor for sale solely for the Canadian market. It was a floor phonograph with a medium-size Orthophonic horn, with a 2-spring motor and walnut finish. Like the VV 4-30, it had no "doors" on the front to control the volume of playback. It sold new for $135.00 CDN with a spring wound motor; an electric motor version (VE) was offered for $165.00 as well. 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.
