I don't know very much about my old victrola. I opened it up and there are old parts inside of it. What is the metal made out of I wondered and I read that there are diamond pieces on parts as well as saphires. The metal looks brass color so I assume that is what it is made of. I have a little case of old needles too. What are these things worth?
