This is an old phonograph needle called the Everplay and the original advertising pamphlet states it; Eliminates All Needles For Phonographs. It has a $100.00 guarantee to not injure lateral cut records! It says the Everplay has a 9” coiled wire which plays thousands of records instead of constantly changing steel needles. The advertising itself is a lot of fun but it does come with an original needle and the little metal housing that attaches it to a piece of cardboard that has the instructions on it. The card has a 1921 patent date. It also has the envelope that the needle and card originally came in. It also comes with an old box that probably held multiple needles and the literature which could be used in a display case in a music store.
The needle fits in a reproducer that takes a changeable steel needle. It does appear to have a very thin wire and overall it looks to be in very good, unused condition. Keep in mind that the claims and the guarantee are by the Everplay Co. and not by me. The instruction card measures about 2” by 3 3/8” and it is in good condition with minimal edge wear but the envelope, slightly larger has some tears. Unfolded, the pamphlet measures about 10 ½” by 6 ¼” and is in very good condition with minimal edge wear. The box measures about 6 7/8” by 3 ¾” by 1 1/8” and it is in nice but used condition with scuffs, edge and wear and light soiling.
