RARITY: ¤ VALUE ¤¤¤
The Victor II started out as the "Victor E" model in 1901, and then was transitioned to Victor II nomenclature around 1905 when the tapered arm was first used, but there was some overlap in production with the E Model series. Selling for $30.00, it featured a single-spring motor, a brass horn, and a tapered tonearm (after 1905). The cabinet was made of oak, somewhat larger than the Victor I. The Victor I was produced up until the early 1920's, by which time the price had been raised to $37.50. Approximately 125,000 of these phonographs were produced. At present, there is not a good correlation between serial number and production date for this model. Example at right has the optional "flower" horn.
