This smallest member of Victor's Roman numeral series was introduced in 1903 at a cost of $20 and enjoyed a 17 year lifespan.

The single spring motor supplied enough power to play through a single record, but typically will not play beyond that.

Improvements in the motor and turntable size were made over the years.

Note the drop-in type elbow in the example below, a style seen in the last versions of the Victor I.
