    The Universal Model X double-button, carbon microphone, circa 1920s, represents a nostalgic era in early radio communications.  OEM Spring Ring Mount & Suspension Stand accompany the mike. It is in generally very good condition.  The function could not be assessed.  [If you are interested in how to get a carbon mic to work check James Steel's excellent site where he describes the process.]   The NBC Flag is just a paper cut out for display purposes!

    This type of microphone was used in early public address systems in the 1920's and 30's.

    President Warren Harding's Inaugural address is playing.
    A double-button mic  found its way into President Warren G. Harding¡¯s Inaugural Address in 1921.

    Postal Policy:

      The only postal option offered is the United States Postal Service, Priority or Express mail.   Insurance is highly recommended.  I will assist you on any needed. insurance claims but I cannot be responsible for lost or damaged uninsured items.

      International postage will likewise be provided solely by the USPS but surface mail options are not provided as the delay in delivery often results in disputes and anxiety on both ends. (International buyers note if the packed weight exceeds 4 pounds, Global Priority Mail is not an option. Also, for all international orders, the buyer must supply a phone number for the customs form)

      I pack in a paranoid fashion, double boxed, bubble wrapped and often styrofoamed with shredded papered. The item is usually in a separate plastic bag as well.
