Pictured here is a 1957 Seeburg Select-O-Matic KD-200 Jukebox. It features the classic design style of the automotive industry that was so influential in the 1950s. The speaker grill has prominent chromed design elements to resemble the taillights and fins of a late 50’s automobile. This juke is a classic representation of the jukebox design qualities of the Silver Age of Jukeboxes that ran from 1952 to 1962.

Silver Age Jukebox

The KD-200 was a Select-O-Matic, so it was able to offer 200 possible selections from both sides of up to 100 45rpm records. The song titles are displayed on a drum that rotates when a button is pushed. The KD-200 was manufactured with an electronic memory unit that could store multiple selections and recall them when it came time to play them.

    I have the same jukebox.. it worked great… until it sat for an extended period. Then after I plugged it in and turned it on, I might get one or two songs, then the needle housing whatever its called would just go up and down the track and not stop to get a record.. Scan mode I guess. Then one day when I had it on just for the lights and ambiance, it turned off and wont go back on again. Not sure whats up.. Any ideas?

    That’s a nice KD!
    Mark……there can be many things wrong with the jukebox that makes it scan twice and not pick up a record. The selection receiver probably needs to be rebuilt as the original componients go bad and the write in or read out circuits fail. These are hard to rebuild as well as they used printed circuit boards for just one year on the KD200 and L100. I just finished restoring the elecronics on a L100 and it was much more difficult than other Seeburgs of the era.

    I have one like yours. Completely operational and restored. Can you give me a value?

    Richard,
    We do not do appraisals or give value estimations of machines. To get an idea what yours is worth, it may help to scan online auction sites or talk with other collectors. Price is always a variable depending on condition of the machine as well as current economic factors.
