One of Columbia's best selling models, the Graphophone Type B was introduced in 1897 and continued to be offered for around ten years. Its nickname comes from the eagle on the $10 gold coin, its original price.
The openworks keywind motor, with double spring, was designed by Thomas MacDonald, Columbia's factory manager and chief engineer.
This example has not been taken apart and restored, but is in very good clean working original condition. Like most, it is missing the tiny cover for the belt. The ten inch black and gold japanned horn is an older reproduction.
This machine is smaller and lighter than most Edison models. With its colorful banner decal it makes a nice display piece, particularly if you're pressed for space.
Price includes 3 three cylinder records.
