This  looks to be a 'New Model'   and should be  a nice player...

 

At one time I was living in  a  region of Australia  where  potatoes  were grown  and, of course, they were  cheap  to buy.  During that period I visited friends  who lived in a much more tropical  area  and there it was Advocados  that were  giveaway prices....  One night I had the wonderfull dream  of  buying a truck, filling it with spuds, driving up to the  hot country, selling at a great profit and  returning with a load of  advocados... a great idea  until  I realised  that people were already  doing this for a living  since the beginning  of trade routes.

Thanks for this story. It's a good one.
