Airline 62-103 (1934)

Airline 62-103 (1934)

This is a rather rare model possibly never offered before on the Attic. In addition it could be one of the best overall examples. The chassis was factory finished with a copper coating and for the most part displays as it did in 1934. The dial and grille cloth are correct reproductions. The dial is backlit with attractive green light. The cabinet was completely refinished starting with an undamaged cabinet. The radio has been serviced and plays well. 17"H x 15"W x 12"D. $599.00. (0260786)

 

Airline 84GCB-1062A

Airline 84GCB-1062A

The first one of these I've seen in maroon. The mounting holes for the back were damaged and reinforced so the back stays on. Otherwise it is in excellent condition. This set is untested and offered as is. 6-1/2"W x 4-1/2"H x 3-1/4"D. $79.00. (0260784)

 

Algene AR-5-U Portable w/Snake Skin Case

Algene AR-5-U Portable w/Snake Skin Case

For the collector that has been looking for a radio in a red snake skin cosmetic case, look no further. The radio dates from the late 1940's and sports Lucite knobs, handle and grille. The case shows some wear, but overall in very good original condition including the grille cloth. The power cord is rather short given that you have to store it under the lid. The mirror is a little cloudy from age. It has a lighted dial. The set has been serviced and plays good. 11"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D. $225.00. (0260697)

 

Atwater Kent 10C-4700

Atwater Kent 10C-4700

The iconic AK breadboards were among the first radios to be collected and preserved. This model 10C saw some restoration at some point in the past. The board was refinished and well done. It is missing some trim grommets. The wires that pass through the board to the detector are missing the brass eyelets that mount in the board. The grommet that the power cord passes through is missing. The wire on the coils show some fraying. The Bakelite is very good with just a 1/4" hairline at one tube socket in the detector which is hard to see. The model tag is there but missing the warranty tag. Overall this is a nice clean example that displays beautifully. All the O1A tubes test good. It has not been electrically serviced and is sold untested. $799.00. (0260773)

 

Atwater Kent 20 Compact (1924)

Atwater Kent 20 Compact (1924)

This 1924 AK is in very good original condition including the finish. The radio is being offered untested. The prior owner made nice brass ID tags for the wiring as shown. The 01A tubes have all been checked and test good. One base tag is missing. Overall very clean and complete and ready for display.20"W x 5-1/2"H x 6"D. $159.00. (0260796)

 

Audiotronics 222

Audiotronics 222

The company made audio equipment for school and based in North Hollywood CA. This radio probably dates from the mid 1950's. There was a black stripe on the left side that most likely covered what class or department it belonged to. I was able to cover it fairly well with a matching color. Otherwise over all it's in excellent original condition. The indicator light comes on and the set plays really well, so I'm offering it as found unrestored. 13"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D. $99.00. (0260707)

 

Davison Haynes Aero

Davison Haynes Aero

The only identification is Aero on the escutcheon and the number 15997 on the label. This is an extremely rare radio and is the only example I'm aware of. There is little documentation about the company and it appears they were only in business from 1930 to 31. The chassis was assembled at Gilfillan Bros. Plant in L.A. The chassis is the same used in their model 92 and 93 consoles. The radio is in beautiful condition inside and out. The chassis is super clean with no corrosion. The set was serviced by the former owner and plays fine with strong reception. The cabinet has been refinished. The grille cloth is a replacement, but I believe the knobs are original to the set. There is no schematic for this set and so it is offered primarily for display and preservation. 16-1/2"H x 15"W x 9-1/2"D. $749.00. (0260733)

 

Detrola Tombstone (model unknown, 1933)

Detrola Tombstone (model unknown, 1933)

This rare unknown model was offered in two-, three-, and four-knob variations. I believe this is the first example to be offered on the Radio Attic. The radio is in excellent original condition with the exception of the grille cloth. It was replaced with period cloth. The chassis has been serviced and the set plays well. 13-1/2"H x 10"W x 7"D. $359.00. (0260753)

 

Emerson 414 "Wheat" (1933)

Emerson 414 "Wheat" (1933)

Also known as "Fleur-de-Lis," the model 414 dates from 1933. The chassis was also used in the Mickey Mouse and Snow White sets produced by Emerson. These sets are a rare find in excellent all original condition down to the power cord. This example uses a pin drive high impedance speaker rather than the field coil type as both have shown up with this chassis. Unfortunately I could not adjust this speaker to handle higher volume. Otherwise the chassis has been restored and is receiving several stations that you can listen to at low volume. It is ready for display. 7-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 5"D. $595.00. (0260785)

 

Grunow 632 (1937)

Grunow 632 (1937)

The 1937 model 632 is a rather rare variation of the model 588. I have a history with this set as I sold it in Arizona only to find it here in New Mexico 25 years later. It is in excellent original condition with the exception of replacement grille cloth and dial cover. The teledial on these is very attractive and when lit has a 3D effect behind the pointer. The chassis has been cleaned, lubricated and serviced. This set has a 10-inch speaker and it gets strong clear AM reception but little on short wave. 16"W x 10"H x 8-1/2"D. $495.00. (0260793)

Loaded with style. 12"W x 8"H x 7"D. $599.00. (0260803)
