    The models 50 with cabinet Modern and 51 with the cabinet 18th Century have chassis from the 300 series but less the changer and show a smaller cabinet. They were made for three seasons only as 50D Modern, 50E Modern and 50F modern, 51D 18th Century, 51E 18th Century and 51F 18th Century.
    The same is 60-D, 60-E and 60-F with cabinet modern.
    Also models 60 Modern and 61 18th Century were made without changers, for season 1935/36 as 60-D and 61-D (for $ 495), for season 1936/37 as 60-E and 61-E and for season F but all with the bigger chassis series 400. To all of those one could add the conceiled Record Changer model 160.
