Original U.S. WWII U.S. Army Special Services Phonograph Player - Fully Functional
Original Item: Only One Available. A World War II record player used by the Army Special Services Division, as indicated by the stencil on the lid, which was responsible for, among other things, entertainment and recreational activities for the troops in the United States and the theaters of combat operations.
The phonograph player is in very good fully functional condition, contained within an OD green case with leather carrying handle. The exterior of the wood case has scuffs and paint loss. Inside it is in excellent condition and the felt on the platter is still in great shape. There is a paper label on the inside of the lid that details the winding, use, cleaning, and oiling of the phonograph. It also indicates that the turntable was made by the BOETSCH BROS COMPANY of NEW YORK CITY.
The unit is spring powered, which is wound using the crank present in the case. When the unit is cranked and the switch activated, the turn table rotates smoothly. The unit has multiple extra needles and small spring in a compartment on the turn table. Approximately 17" by 16" by 7 1/2" inches in size. We even throw in an old (cracked) record!
