The Type C

Back to the Columbia graphophones

 

Issued in 1897 for $50.00, the machine has a front door very common on early modified machines (Amet motors) but not often seen on factory products (see the BC).  Notice the rare 6" long light wax cylinder made for that machine.  The glass recording mouth piece is not from the same period (patented in 1913).
