Canadian General Electric Model CJM-3 "Teardrop" 78 rpm record player.
This Canadian made GE model CJM-3 Teardrop body and beautiful streamlined style bakelite tone arm were designed by John Vassos.
The Astatic cartridge used victrola type needles.
There are two holders under the tone arm for storing new and used needles. This record player was designed to plug into and use a radio as the amplifier.
There was also a similar model HM-21 that contained a wireless transmitter to broadcast to an AM radio so no direct hook-up was necessary.
General Electric Model 16 "Teardrop" 78 rpm record player.
This U.S. made GE model 16 Teardrop record player has a one tube amplifier and speaker. I don't think the amp was original.
I suspect from the construction and use of a Crosley speaker, it was added so it would not require the use of a radio.
I do not have any data on this model record player yet. You will notice from the photo that it did not have the bakelite tone arm of earlier models. Larger Photo Inside Photo

Zenith Cobra-Matic Micro Adapter
This Zenith Cobra-Matic Micro Adapter was designed to allow the playing of 33 and 45 RPM records on a Zenith 78 RPM Cobra-Matic record
player. You placed the adapter over the spindle on a single speed 78 RPM Cobra-Matic record player using the hole by the tone arm. A rubber wheel underneath rode
on top of the 78 RPM platter and drove the adapter at either 33 RPM or 45 RPM.
The lever moved the rubber wheel further out on the 78 platter for 45 RPM or toward the center for 33 RPM.
You removed the cartridge on the 78 RPM Cobra-Matic tone arm and the tiny Cobra-Matic tone arm wires plugged into the cartridge holder of the larger 78 RPM arm.
