WHAT IS A VICTOR VICTROLA VV-XVI 73288 IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WORTH?

Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. The "VV-XVI" was the original internal-horn Victrola; officially introduced in 1906, it remained the Victrola flagship model for many years. Although it was originally advertised as "Victrola the Sixteenth" (XVI), the metal identification tag used a "VTLA" designation in the early years. This was the first commercial product to enclose the horn inside a stylish cabinet. Selling for a whopping $200.00, it became an immediate hit. Checking with several auction houses the value depending on the woods finish such as Red mahogany, Burl walnut the value is $1450.00 to $1900.00 in excellent original condition, Circassian walnut which is the rarest finish sold for $3500.00 which I listed an actual sold results below. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike
