VV 8-7 / VE 8-7X
RARITY: ¤¤¤ VALUE ¤¤¤
The VV 8-7 was a "special" Orthophonic Victrola, introduced in 1926. It was intended for use by schools and churches, and had a very plain oak cabinet (with wheels for easy transport) and large Orthophonic horn. Standard features included an automatic brake and nickel plated hardware. All 8-7's are identical in design and features. It was discontinued in early 1927, when it was replaced by the more attractive VV 8-8.
The original 1926 selling price of the 8-7 was $150.00. Schools automatically got a 25% discount from the list price. An estimated total of 2,075 Victrola 8-7's were produced.
Factory records show that only 4 electric VE 8-7's were produced.
