I have an old record player from 1970. It's an ITT KB 1250

This answer was rated:

I have an old record player from 1970. It's an ITT KB 1250 with beautiful speakers that look like footstools. It is in near-perfect condition, the only issue being a bit of crackle being heard at start-up for a short while. Any chance of a valuation on this item, please? CAn get a photo if wanted.
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Does the footstool have a maker's mark or serial number?
Customer: The speakers have separate serial numbers: (a) 1545/14978 & (b) 1545/15249
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: Sorry, did not mean to send that straight away. The speakers also have a reference for ordering spares: "KS 651". I could not find a serial number on the record deck, but it has a notice which actually described the unit as KA1250, rather than KB, although KB is on the front of the unit. This has been in my posession since purchasing new in about February 1970. My name is*****'Sullivan. I am in Coventry, UK. Thank you.

Hello,

My screen name is*****'s see how I can help you today.

UPLOAD pictures of the item (the front and all writing
on back or bottom if there is any). I do not need more than three pictures.
For the best photo, set on white paper on a table (never hold item in your hands).

Use the tiny blue square with an arrow or the paper clip symbol
to browse your device for a photo. Add one picture at a time.
Add a message before each photo (phot 1, photo2, photo 3).

I hope to give real-time responses but there are occasions where I take a bit longer.
I will always respond to you as quickly as possible.

Best Regards,

Customer/p>

HiCustomer- thank you for your replies. I was trying to get a photo taken but firstly, ran into technical difficulties, then I had an accident which ended up giving me a burn on one of my hands - so it has been going really well! Anyway, I am satisfied with your reply. I love the item greatly, so don't plan to sell, but I just wondered what it might be worth should the time come when I have to sell it. Thanks once again for your help. Tom O'Sullivan

Get well soon, Tom.

I have done that before and there is no relief for that kind of burn it seems. Best wishes,Customer/p>
