I’m a rookie at this site. Trying to figure out how to post pics. I’ve seen info on the standard phonograph model E, but nothing on the home version. Is this a pretty common phonograph? I really appreciate any help. I had someone offer $100 for it. It does have the cogent horn with it.

Well, the market for many talking machines (except for the high-end models) is a bit soft these days; but you could probably get $100 for the horn alone - not that I would suggest parting it out.
In good playing condition, a Home E with Cygnet horn is worth at least $500; if it's a wooden Music Master horn, that would add maybe $100- $200 more. (I am strictly spitballing; but experienced collectors could give you a better estimate).

It seems to be in good shape. I wish I could figure out how to post pics. The motor runs, but it was missing a belt, which I just ordered a replacement for. I ended up with 4 old phonographs and over 600 records. Trying to figure them all out.
