A $15 economy Berliner offered by Eldridge Johnson around 1899, this machine employed components of the Improved Gramophone of 1897. It was advertised as "Not as good as our $25 instrument, but ten times better than any other talking machine." Note the absence of a tone arm.
The letters JS are stamped on the casing, their meaning unclear.
