The Victor Type E, ca. 1901-1903, was referred to in old advertising as the Monarch Junior, although that designation is rarely employed by modern collectors.

With its initial price of $25, and with its double spring motor capable of playing through more than one record, it proved to be a popular seller.

Both front mount and rear mount versions were available during its lifespan, and front mount examples are often found with a metal plate announcing "Remove this plate to attach rigid arm."
