This recorder is in beautiful condition. I got it from an old German lady who bought it new in 1981 and used it minimally. The price sticker from the shop in Germany she bought it from is still on the side of the box and reads DM 364 which was a lot of money in its day. There are no dents or scratches on it and it looks practically new. I will pack it very carefully. Pick up is available at my secondhand bookstore in Melbourne if that suits. Happy to answer any questions. Good luck.
