THE HMV SB101D was one of HMV De Luxe models that went on sale from June 1927, SB signifying that this machine was covered in a blue crocodile effect fabric. The use of a 410 motor, 2-flap lid catch and "Pakawa" (pronounced packaway.) handle identify this particular SB 101 as a D version. This was bought in a poor state. Some hardware e.g lid catches , needle tray etc have been replated using the nickel plating bath described under on the "Restore-A-Gram" website (see link in left hand panel).
