I wonder if anyone can help me with some information. While clearing out my late father-in-law's house the family came across an old 16mm cine projector. We have been trying to find out as much as possible about it, but it hasn't been easy. Yesterday I found this forum and I hope someone might be able to help. There are some people very interested in buying it but we have no idea of its worth. It has a grey case and the following are what we can see written. It is a Victor Cine Projector by Victor Trading, model G, "Made in England for E.K.Cole Ltd , 5 Vigo Street, London", probably over 50 years old. I read somewhere it's called a Greyline? The sound system is in another box, made by Salford Electrical Instruments of Peel Works, Silk Street, Salford. I have searched all over the web, youtube, also ebay and other auction sites, but the models and prices vary a lot and I cannot find any info at all about the model G, so I would really appreciate any help or advice you can give me especially even a ballpark figure of its worth.

I'm not sure I can shed any light, but it would help to see a photo. I know of no operations by Victor Animatograph in England, and the Victor Trading name is unfamiliar, but would be interested in learning whether there is a connection. You can reach me via my username on this board at aol.com.
It took several days of research to find this information and put it all together. If anyone has more to offer or any corrections, please pass the info on to me or this board- Thanks.
Alexander F. Victor founded the Victor Animatograph Corporation in Davenport, Iowa in 1910. By 1923 they were selling their first 16mm projectors. The Victor Cine Projector, Model G (Greyline), similar to the American made Model 40, was made starting around 1935 or so by British Greyline Victor, London, England. Victor Corp. made the projectors and they were assembled by the Motiograph Company between 1951 and 1955. By 1957, Kalart, Inc. of Plainville, Conn. bought-out and merged with Victor Corp. to form Kalart/Victor Corp.
Before Kalart manufactured projectors and other photo equipment, they were a factory that made electrical equipment prior to 1945, presumably for the war effort. Later they also acquired Craig Research, Inc., manufacturers of film viewers & splicers, over-head projectors, reader learning aids, etc... During the 1960s they were purchased and merged with DeVry/TSI to form DeVry/TSI/Victor. (TSI is Technical Service, Inc. of Plymouth, Michigan, USA and DeVry was based in Chicago, IL)
The Model G or Greyline is a 16mm film type with sound and according to sources uses either a CKY 240v ~ 200w, or a CXK 120v ~ 300w ANSI lamp. This projector was made into the early 1960s from what I have learned.
Interesting, while clearing out our clubroom attic we found a Victor Model 40 "Made in England for the Victor Animatograph Corporation London Ltd. by Salford Electrical Instruments Ltd., Peel Works, Silk St. Salford, Lancs." I have a few photos of the projector but not sure how I can upload them to here. It is missing the top cover and there is no sign of a speaker for it.
