Victor VV-VIII Victrola 1913

Got this today, it's almost 100yrs old and works! According to info I've found and info on this site , this is from 1913 with the S/N (39641 c) and the flat crank shank.
I posted a video to show the action and sound.

The sound-box is in decent shape, dry gaskets naturally. I need to get some new needles as there's no way to tell if the needles I've got are decent. They need to be replaced after 1-2 plays!

Fact:  What cost $40 in 1913 would cost $871.09 in 2010.
