Hi - I'm trying to identify the year of a magnavox phonograph and radio console we have. The serial and model numbers are ripped off so I am unable to identify it that way. The unit needs a new needle, but I'm big sure which one to look for since I don't even know the model number. I've attached photos. Any help would be appreciated!

Model numbers only help to the extent someone else may have same model and can fill you in with details. Or some previous serviceman has the data, or some brochure helps. Take the back off and look for chassis numbers. Little white labels with R214-???? or what. Some are stamped in/on the metal. These get to the documentation you may need if you are going to upgrade/fix you set. The record changer will have numbers on labels underneath, stick in your head or use a mirror to get these because it will need to be cleaned and lubed again.
