I recently unpacked a bunch of my grandmothers things and found this Cardinal. I can’t find any other labels to say the model or year that it was made. It has some cosmetic defects, but amazingly, it seems to be functional. My mother believes that it was bought in the 1940s. Can anyone tell me any more information about this? I’m looking for a year, model, or any other details.

I'm not an expert on these things, but I would guess if she bought it in the '40s it was used. It looks much older than that.

Jim is right. This phonograph is from the teens to 20's.
