Classic “Lollipop” Microphone

Scored this Astatic D-104 “Lollipop” microphone on eBay for $22 plus shipping.  This mic comes with the T-UG8 (transistorized [pre-amp] universal grip) stand .

In decent condition and may work but haven’t tested it.  No plans to use it as a mic; it’s mainly for decoration of the shack with that nostalgic look.

This is a very classic ham microphone dating back to the 1930s and is still very popular.

Lots of detailed information on the D-104 can be found here and here and here and here.  Reviews found here.
