Part of Victor's Roman numeral series, the substantial Victor V was Victor's penultimate offering, and the highest priced offering in an oak cabinet. According to Robert Baumbach's Victor Data Book production ran from approximately 1906 to 1922.
Victor advertising would have pronounced it as 'Victor the Fifth,' in the style of European royalty, but collectors today call it a Victor Five.
The Vic V shared the long playing triple spring motor of the Victor VI.
An early version of this cabinet featuring a 12" turntable and an early motor with bevel drive gear has appeared with metal name plates marked Victor D. There are also at least two known variations in mahogany: a very late one, and a variation with gilded columns in the manner of a Victor VI
