One of eight exact replicas made by master machinist and phonograph collector William Ptacek in 1999-2000. Modeled on an original in the Smithsonian Institution (No.154) which was disassembled and precisely measured. Requiring 300-400 hours to complete, this otherwise exact replica carries Mr. Ptacek’s initials beneath the base casting, and lacks a serial number as seen on originals. With original Bergmann Exhibition Tinfoil Phonographs virtually impossible to locate and purchase at any price, this example represents one of only eight opportunities to own an exact replica.
