Gram. Needles

The HMV 101 dates from 1925, the model shown being the first version following on from the HMV 100. The 101 experienced a number of developments thoughout it's production period which ended in 1931, each major variation being recognised by the addition of a letter from A to P excluding"O".  This example, probably dating from 1926, was in good condition when I discovered it but has since had its hardware and case cleaned. The motor has also been stripped, cleaned and lubricated including the spring case and spring. The 101 was missing a handle when purchased.  This has now been added although it is not of the pattern of the original.
