The Victor D was introduced in 1903, and was soon transitioned to a Victor V designation around 1906 when the tapered arm was first used, but there was some overlap in production between the identical Victor D and V models. Initially selling for $55.00, it featured a large triple-spring motor, a standard brass horn, and deluxe cabinet. The cabinet was made of oak, and was larger than the other models available at the time. In later years (around 1909), the cabinet was redesigned with less gingerbread carving. Approximately 21,000 Victor D's were produced, but this is only a rough estimate. A combined total of approximately 70,000 Victor D and Victor V machines were made during the 19 year model run. At present, there is not a good correlation between serial number and production date for this model. Photograph shows a Victor V with the optional spearpoint wood horn. See information on the Victor V for more details.
