Bound Brook, Spring 1997
While rare to see even one lyre grilled Amberola 1, two were to be found at this show! The one shown here is a very early serial number 81

With the beautiful maroon finish and oxidized hardware, this machine was a real prize!
Another machine of some rarity which numbered three at the show, this Columbia AB, has a standard 2-inch mandrel as well as a 5-inch mandrel (pictured in the foreground) which slips over the 2-inch to play the larger Grand cylinders. These were selling in the $2200 to $2500 range.
At a higher price point ($3500), this Edison Concert machine plays only 5-inch Grand records.
