'New' 1925 Silvertone Phonograph

Picked this unit up a month ago or so.

Wasn't even shopping for one but when looking at an antique wood pot belly this was standing out like a sore thumb.

Amazing condition! They sure built things to last back then.

Need to dig my graphite out and put some on the spring, it chatters a bit.

Have read that they used bamboo and thorn needles with these as well as the steel ones. Anyone know where to source some?

Have only played some worn 78s so far.

Is that a Model 20? If so, it was made between 1919-1924. I have one.
