I can think of three models right now - the "Gem", the schoolhouse
version of an
"Opera", and also the various Edison Dictaphones.  Can you provide more
details?

Could it be an Edison Ediphone of Voicewriter?   These were of course
Edison business machines used for dictation and transcription.

Maybe it you submit more info somebody here can help.

Best regards,

I saw an old Edison Cylinder phonograph in a shop near my place. It's all
metal and has two interchangeable hearing tubes.  I didn't know they made
one from metal or is this a fake?  Anybody know what year this was
made and the value?

Thanks,
