Airline 62-715 (1939)

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. $265.00. (1640039)

 

Echophone S-3 Cathedral (1930)

Echophone S-3 Cathedral (1930)

Here we have one of the nicest examples of this West Coast radio I have ever seen. It was manufactured in L.A. in 1930 and later the next year operations were moved to Chicago. In later years the company was purchased/merged into Hallicrafters. It appears all original to me. The rounded top with Gothic arched cabinet is simply flawless, including the Deco wood grille and the chassis is very clean as you can well see. The beautiful brass escutcheon maintains strong patina yet shows of a very ornate design with globe and thumb drive wheel tuning. This is a five-tube set (80, 3 x 24's, and a 45), un-restored, but plays well with short wire antenna. About 17"H x 14"W x 7"D. $329.00. (1640061)

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. Was $579.00, now $529.00. (1640057)

 

FADA 652 "Temple" (1946)

NEW!

FADA 652 "Temple" (1946)

Here we have a beautiful yellow with red trim Catalin "Temple" with a timeless design. There were two variants, one with grille and this one without. I do believe this was a later issue. It maintains a beautiful shine and luster plus plays very, very well all across the dial. There are no cracks, repairs nor reproduction parts... all original except possibly the grille cloth. It has a full factory back and even has most of the two factory stickers on the bottom. Great looker and great player. $699.00. (1640062)

 

Firestone Air Chief S-7398-1 "Beaumont" (1939)

Firestone Air Chief S-7398-1 "Beaumont" (1939)

Highly collectible, Art Deco, six-tube, ornate small radio that appears to have an all original finish including the photo finish bands across the top and bottom plus the factory decal between the knobs. This is a great designed cabinet which was made by the Ingraham Clock Co. for Firestone Tire and Rubber Company. Also present is the original factory back which is most often missing plus the factory label on the bottom. This is an older restore, but plays well across the band. It only weighs approx. 9 pounds. Great for any/all collections or decor. 12-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D. $329.00. (1640059)

 

Garod 6AU1 "Commander" (1946)

NEW!

Garod 6AU1 "Commander" (1946)

Here's a gorgeous example of this streamlined artsy Catalin, model 6AU1, burgundy case with butterscotch handle, grille, and knobs. All parts are original, including full factory back. There are no reproduction parts; there are no cracks, repairs, nor stresses, nor major scratches. The perfect spring loaded handle works perfectly. Look at the cord (many bare wires showing + breaks), thus "untested" for obvious reasons. It should definitely be replaced before plugging it in. Even so, I would have to grade this one as at least a 9.5 out of 10. This is the way I found it and have had it displayed as "eye candy" in my collection for a few years. Say "hello" to Christmas somebody! $899.00. (1640063)

 

General Electric J-80 Cathedral (1932)

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)

 

Philco Jr. 80 Cathedral (1932)

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. $235.00. (1640049)

 

Stromberg-Carlson 61-T Tombstone (1935)

NEW!

Stromberg-Carlson 61-T Tombstone (1935)

Beautiful pre-War tombstone by Stromberg-Carlson with its unique octagon dial (only Stromberg has). The dial is backlit with two pilot lights which really make it pop. This is a seven-tube, two-band radio. The cabinet shows very well with its factory two-toned finish and original grille cloth and factory knobs. The cloth shows minimal wear, but still nice. It is unrestored, but does play across the dial with a hum. Factory stickers are still on the inside of cabinet. About 19"H x 14-3/4"W x 10"D. $249.00. (1640064)

 

Zenith 5-S-119 (1937)

Zenith 5-S-119 (1937)

Big Black Dial!! This is a five-tube, three-band player. Sometimes it is difficult to select a radio from my collection for swap meet or sale here on the Attic....this is one of those, but after having in my personal stuff for eight or more years, it is time to let go. This is a nice Zenith and is original in every way: finish, chassis, speaker, wood "Z" knobs, grille cloth, most of factory label on bottom. It is an older restore, but plays well. I will point out a couple of imperfections which should show in pics: one vertical thin scratch (covered well with Howard's oil) and a couple of finger nail size finish wear on top. Call 'em character flaws if you wish; this is an 82 year old radio that maintains its original finish that still shines like new. The pics really do not do it justice. 16"W x 11-1/2"H x 10"D and weighs approximately 15 lbs. $549.00. (1640060)

 

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.
