RARITY: ¤ VALUE ¤
The VV 2-55 portable was introduced in 1929 as a mid-priced model. It used an Orthophonic soundbox and a single spring motor. The 2-55 was a very strong seller from the start, and production was continued into the 1930's after RCA bought Victor. This little machine was capable of remarkable reproduction. It was so popular, that it became one of Victor's "Top 5" sellers of all time.
The original 1929 selling price of the VV 2-55 was $35.00. An estimated total of 334,000 Victrola 2-55's were produced.
