The VV-III (Victrola 3) was Victor's lowest priced model in the Canadian market in the late 1920's. For all intents and purposes, it is virtually identical to the VV-IV. Interestingly, the VV-IV model was sold both in the USA and Canada up until the middle of 1926; therefore it is highly probable that the VV-III was sold in Canada after 1926, when the VV-IV was discontinued in the US. The VV-III could have used left-over parts and cabinets from the discontinued VV-IV. The VV-III used a simple single-spring motor and Exhibition Soundbox.
Only a few VV-III's have surfaced, and no information is currently available as to total production volumes.
