American Bosch 420 (1935)

Five-tube cigar box style, mantle type radio with AM Broadcast & Police Band. It was serviced with new filter and paper caps, new line cord, cabinet was nicely refinished by previous owner with unique side veneer inlays. Strong Art Deco styling with silver pinstripes. Radio plays loud and strong across the dial with a long wire antenna. Speaker could possibly benefit from re-coning, as there is some minor distortion on very strong local stations. 12-1/2"W x 10-1/4"H x 7-1/2"D; shipping weight 20 pounds. Was $250.00, now $199.00.

Atwater Kent 944 (1934)

Atwater Kent 944 (1934)

A-K's entry level radio for 1934. Four tubes and a small cathedral style cabinet. The radio has a regenerative detector which will cause a loud howl in the speaker if the feedback control located on the rear of the chassis is improperly adjusted. Two bands (broadcast and Police band) that take a bit of finesse to tune due to the lack of AVC and the antenna being coupled to the volume control. You need both hands to tune and be ready to turn down the volume! Radio receives many stations along the AM Band with a long-wire antenna. It was serviced with new filter and paper caps. Resistors checked, new line cord, cabinet was completely refinished with proper toners. New grille cloth. Cabinet shows some minor blemishes on top (see pictures). 14-1/4"H x 12-1/4"W x 8"D. $199.00. (1790017)

Emerson DQ1-333 (1941)

NEW!

Emerson DQ1-333 (1941)

The all original natural finish Plaskon cabinet is in near mint condition. Zero cracks or scratches beyond some minor staining on the bottom side. There is a bit of a swirl pattern on the left side that is from the molding process itself. As with other Plaskon sets, the cabinet is somewhat translucent, so in a dark room the cabinet actually glows! You can see the dial light shining through the cabinet, a very cool effect! It was lightly polished and that's all that was done to it. Absolutely no cracks! Dial cover is nice and clear showing the amazing beauty of the dial face itself. The chassis is super clean. All capacitors have been replaced as was the line cord. The tubes all test strong. It plays (AM only) across the dial as good as it looks, receiving all of my local stations. More photos available upon request. 12-3/4"W x 8"H x 6-1/4"D. $149.00. (1790030)

This model never came with a dial light, but the dial indicator is easily seen through the still clear dial cover.

General Electric H-639 (1939)

Six-tube (+ ballast) AM radio with 78 rpm single play phonograph. Original ballast still functioning, voltages are where they should be.
