From an estate, I picked up an American Microphone MC-1 moving coil cartridge, complete with its matching transformer; probably from the 1950s. Would it still be usable, after all these years, assuming that I could find a stylus for it? Regardless, it is an interesting collectable.

Probably would work electrically, but it's most probable the pliable rubber needle 'saddle' that it rests in has probably hardened or cracked, thus hurting the sound.
