Airline 62-715 (1939)

ON SALE
until
October 13

Airline 62-715 (1939)

Very neat and unusual tabletop/tombstone radio with unusual cylindrical dial and thumbwheel tuning. This set is an older restore as it has been in my personal collection for a few years. Preset push buttons work, but would have to be reset for your local stations. Strong green tuning eye as well. Strong player. Three things that may be considered as flaws: 1) small stress in clear dial cover, which clearly shows but does not detract; 2) approx. 3-1/2" stress in veneer on left front which I have tried to show in photo, (since it is original finish, I have elected to not fix accordingly. It actually follows the grain); 3) although I call it all original finish, the top may have been refinished at one time; cannot say for sure but wanted to point it out. Overall a great radio and seldom seen. It also has the original factory sticker on the inside of cabinet. 16"W x 14-1/2"H x 9"D; weighs about 18 pounds. Was $265.00, now $225.00. (1640039)

 

Climax ME17 "Angry Face" (1937)

NEW!

Climax ME17 "Angry Face" (1937)

Beautiful and seldom offered for sale is what I think I've correctly identified as a Climax ME17 based on the factory metal tag on chassis. If you have ever tried identifying these, you know why I say "I think" as there is not a lot written and at mercy of the Radio Museum info. This is sometimes also called "frowny face" based on the unusual configuration of the multi-layered dial giving distinct resemblance of eyes and mouth with a unique 3D design. This multi-colored dial when lit up or not has to be one of the coolest dials going. The eye tube also gives it a wonderful appearance and is bright green, working as it should. The chassis maintains its factory crinkle paint and is rust free. The cabinet has been beautifully restored by previous owner. 24"W x 12"H x 10"D; 20 pounds. $579.00. (1640056)

 

Emerson AT-172 w/Ingraham Cabinet (1937)

NEW!

Emerson AT-172 w/Ingraham Cabinet (1937)

I'm tempted to say "Let the pictures do the talking," but I'd better say a little something about this truly rare "humpback" Emerson in an obviously Ingraham cabinet. BC and SW both working. The radio has been professionally restored both electronically and cabinet wise. Even the correct decals were applied and really give it a complete look. It maintains the correct Emerson speaker as well. The chassis is rust free and is also in wonderful condition. The radio is designed with "Teledial" tuning along with a more standard knob control. Contained within is a six-tube super-het chassis that offers both Broadcast and Shortwave. The tele-dial has ten pre-sets, but those if used will have to be set for stations in your area. I will include paperwork instructions how to set... rather simple. Plays and displays unusually well and a really super specimen. About 19"W x 11"H x 10"D. Weighs approx. 16 lbs. $579.00. (1640057)

 

G&F Sales "Searchight" (1937/38)

G&F Sales "Searchight" (1937/38)

What a wonderful futuristic novelty specimen of this difficult to find radio, often called the "Searchlight," "Spy," and sometimes "Disc." This one has been beautifully restored physically and electronically. It plays well on both bands. There is an obvious "flaw" in the wood at about the one o'clock position, but it was that way when I purchased it and I have made no attempt to fix it; will leave that to the new owner. Other than that I can't find much fault with this awesome piece. It was sold by G and F Sales of Chicago and a lot has been written/discussed about who actually manufactured it for them. Most of the folks seem to identify it with Pacific Radio Co. Some claim it was Climax. Who knows for sure? This particular one plays and displays beautifully as you can see. The tuning eye is strong and works properly. The beautiful multi-colored dial is near perfect. This should make a nice addition to most collections or "standalone" on anyone's bookcase (radio collector or not). Precious piece of history right here! $2,150.00. (1640054)

 

General Electric J-80 Cathedral (1932)

NEW!

General Electric J-80 Cathedral (1932)

One of the most advanced and strong playing radios of the era. Gothic two-toned cabinet which shows and plays beautifully. It looks like an older refinish, but maybe recent. Everything else, grille cloth, dial, escutcheon, knobs, etc. appear to be original. This is an eight-tube superhet that has been recently recapped, etc.; strong player. Rust-free chassis and maintains the original factory tag. Absolute "King of the Cathedrals," IMO. Heavy radio. About 18-1/2"H x 13"W x 10"D. $479.00. (1640055)

 

Gilfillan 6H Tombstone (1942)

Gilfillan 6H Tombstone (1942)

Absolutely gorgeous and seldom seen 1942 Gilfillan tombstone with original finish including the top and bottom photo-finished bands. Although the photo doesn't show, the eye tube works correctly and is very green (not the blue tint as shown) and opens/closes as it should. It is really eye-catching and really makes the radio "pop." The switch on the side is factory, but no idea as to the function. Notice the original factory "Gilfillan" tag between knobs and factory wooden back. The original clear dial cover has slight separation in corner, but hardly noticeable but did want to point it out. It has recently been capped and all tubes, etc., checked/replaced where needed. Great sound and volume. Six tubes and two bands. Nice addition to most/all collections. Plug and play/display. $229.00. (1640003)

 

Majestic 461 (1933)

ON SALE
until
October 13

Majestic 461 (1933)

Here is a beautiful, original finish, chrome grille and hubcaps (escutcheons), correct original wooden square knobs. Known as the "Master Six," it has illuminated dial, six tubes, and tone control. Front panels are book-matched burl walnut. Really is a show piece and plays very well. Recently recapped and restored. Fluting sides and top. About 17"H x 13"W x 8"D. Was $425.00, now $359.00. (1640045)

 

Motorola 59T2 (1939)

ON SALE
until
October 13

Motorola 59T2 (1939)

Here is a rather rare, completely restored Motorola 1939 World's Fair five-tuber. Really a neat, compact, clean and ready to play/display jewel. Beautiful lighted convex dial that works very well. All pushbuttons work well. but need to be preset for your area's stations needless to say. Really neat thumbwheel dialing that also works well. It is small at 11-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 7"D and weighs only 10 pounds. Was $229.00, now $179.00. (1640042)

 

Philco 60 "Baby Grand" Cathedral (1936)

Philco 60 "Baby Grand" Cathedral (1936)

Here we have a nice, Philco cathedral known as Baby Grand. They made five versions beginning in 1934, ending in 1937. I believe this is version three of five as near as I can tell. This is nice two toned well playing five-tube Superhet, recently restored. It is not perfect, but still a very nice set for play & display. I think the more ornate cut-out grille makes this more desirable than later versions. $195.00. (1640051)

 

Philco Jr. 80 Cathedral (1932)

ON SALE
until
October 13

Philco Jr. 80 Cathedral (1932)

Nice Philco Jr., model 80. It is an older restore that plays very well and shows well with the beautiful two-toned finish with proper toning. The Jr. was introduced in 1932 as a price leader in the industry. It was very aggressively priced at $18.75 which made it one of the least expensive on the market. Philco was accused of trying to start a price war, but as documented, was using it to lure customers into stores to help introduce more expensive models. Surprisingly, many, many Jr. units were sold. This one is a nice survivor and plays and displays very well. Was $235.00, now $199.00. (1640049)

 

RCA 9TX33 "Little Nipper" (1939)

ON SALE
until
October 13

RCA 9TX33 "Little Nipper" (1939)

Here is a really nice pre-War, Art Deco, two-toned, small wooden jewel. Very stylish with step-down/waterfall top. Even the fluted feet draw attention from side view and from front view give it a bow-legged look. Most of factory decal on bottom of case. The grille cloth appears to be original as are knobs and dial face. Although the back is not original, it fits nicely and give it a completed look. The chassis which has recently been serviced is also very clean. Plays very well with the short antenna attached. 10"W x 6-1/2"H x 5"D. Was $179.00, now $159.00. (1640053)

 

Stewart-Warner R-466 (1940)

Stewart-Warner R-466 (1940)

Beautiful little two-toned wood, mostly original finish with the normal scuffs for a 78 year old radio. Look closely at all the fluting and step down top which water-falls down the front. Recently restored with all tubes and caps replaced as needed. Plays very well all across the dial. Nice lighted dial as well. Weighs approx. Very clean and rust-free chassis as you can plainly see. Really a nice and seldom seen S-W. 12-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D; weighs about 11 pounds. $235.00. (1640026)

 

Zenith 6-S-321 "Stars and Stripes" (1939)

Zenith 6-S-321 "Stars and Stripes" (1939)

Here we have an very nice example of a pre-War Zenith, which was totally restored recently by previous owner and really pops with Art Deco styling. The toned trim and wrap around bars with period correct grille cloth simply make it one of the finest examples I've seen. What a beautiful flawless dial which is back-lit by two pilot lights. Very clean chassis with original Zenith speaker. Plays very well on both BC and SW, tho not much listening on SW any more. The escutcheon is brass as evidenced by the stars, but great patina unmolested. Ready for play & display. $429.00. (1640052)

Tom's Terms:

Goal: My intent is to sell quality radios that are clean and complete, and in nearly all cases working.  I try my best to accurately describe my radios and provide close up, clear photographs to show any defects if present.  Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.  If they came from my personal collection, chances are they are either "recent restores," "older restores," "unrestored but working," or "unrestored & not working," all of which I will make notation in my descriptions.  Also, pictures should be considered as part of the description.  Very few radios are museum quality and very old, so they are not perfect.  Of course, beauty or perfection is in the eyes of the beholder, but I am picky myself.  Having said that, I think my prices reflect the rarity, condition, quality, completeness, etc.  I want satisfied customers so they will become return customers and even tell other collectors about me and my radios.  Although selling for $$ is important, this is still and always be a hobby for me.  Saving radios from the dumpster, bringing them back to life, collecting, and in this case putting them up for adoption is more fun than the law should allow.  Please ask questions before we make a deal.

Packing and shipping: Prices listed do not include shipping or insurance costs.  Unforeseeable things can happen in shipping and given fragile nature of antique electronics, I am not responsible for shipping damages.  I prefer sending through UPS, but USPS and FedEx are also available.  I strive to get the radio to you in the same condition as it left here.  Proper packing is important.  I personally package all radios and use plenty of packing material to make sure it gets to you safely.  This may cost more and take more time, but it's worth it to get the radio to you safely.  Also, I insure all radios in case there is damage or it gets lost in shipping.  This is not my first rodeo for packing & shipping.

Payment: Once a buyer agrees to purchase a radio through email, I will hold for five days until payment is received.  If still unpaid after five days, the radio is once again for sale to other viewers on the website.

1) Money Order or Bank Cashiers Check.
2) PayPal funded from your checking account or PayPal balance only.  No credit card payments.
3) Personal checks (must clear prior to shipping; usually 5-7 working days).
4) Cash (in-person local pickup only)

Returns:  I want you to be satisfied with your radio.  I will take returns, but these conditions must be met.  You must contact me before returning it, and it must be shipped within four days after you receive it.  It must be returned as packed and arrive in the same condition as I sent it, thus please hang onto all packing.  Return postage is at your expense and shipping charges are not refunded.  Once I receive the radio back in good condition, I will refund your money.

Note:  I will not ship outside the CONUS. Sorry, Lower 48 only.  I will not ship to P.O. boxes.
