RARITY: ¤¤ VALUE ¤¤¤
The Victor E (referred to as the "Monarch Junior" in the sales literature) was a low-priced phonograph introduced in 1901, one step up from the economy "Royal". It featured a small 7 inch turntable and double-spring motor with an oak cabinet. Earliest versions had the integral tonearm/horn design, and subsequent versions used the Rigid Arm and then Tapered Arm designs. It sold new for $25.00, and production ran until late 1908, when the "R" received some additional mechanical upgrades, and became the Victor II. A stamped steel horn was standard along with an Exhibition Soundbox. Exact production numbers are unknown, but are assumed to be approximately 60,000 units during the 7 year run.
