The “CHANGE / REPEAT” and “STOP / PLAY” levers control the music box operation. The enclosure cabinet measures 8-1/4 W. The complete unit weighs 23 lbs. Used, this item is considered to be in FAIR to GOOD condition. The crank wind-up and drive mechanism, as well as the “CHANGE / REPEAT” lever are fully functional. The “STOP / PLAY” lever does not work. A total of six(6) teeth tips are missing (1 from the left comb and 5 from the right comb). Overall the operation is sluggish – a good cleaning and lubricating is needed. The glass pane over the cylinder is broken and a small piece missing.
