Admiral Y3609N

NEW!

Admiral Y3609N

Here's a set that has never been listed on the Attic in 20 years. It is a six-tube AM/FM probably dating from around 1964. It has a hairline on top which is shown. In addition to some small edge nicks and light spots of discoloration. The clock is not functional. All original except for center band switch knob. The radio has been serviced and has strong reception on AM and FM. An FM antenna is needed for total FM reception. Although far perfect it displays well and a great mid Century set. 12"W x 7"H x 5-1/2"D. $149.00. (0260790)

 

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 10A-4550 (1924)

Atwater Kent 10A-4550 (1924)

The AK 10A was produced in 1924 and offered in brown or black as model 4560. This is an extremely nice original example. The board retains the original finish with the model tag, but missing the warranty tag. The Bakelite is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. There is some stain discoloration to the one coil. The brass has a beautiful patina with no corrosion. All the 01A tubes have tested good. Otherwise the set has not been serviced and is sold untested. In a class of their own these early AK radios are a great piece of radio history. $1,199.00. (0260772)

 

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)

 

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 321-AW (1934)

This is the 1934 Emerson Chinese chest oriental garden radio. These were hand painted with no two exactly alike. The radio displays well from all angles with bright bold designs. It retains all the original emblems and ID tags. The original grille cloth shows some discoloration, but no rips or tears. The knobs and hardware are also correct and original to the set. The chassis has been serviced and is clean and complete. The radio plays well; 10"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D. $649.00. (0260745)

 

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)

NEW!

Grundig 2440U

Made from 64 to 65, the 2440U coupled strong performance with Mid Century design. There are tight stress cracks in the high gloss piano finish that run along the top and sides. The finish is not compromised by them and I believe they have been there for decades. The set is in original condition and overall displays well. The power cord has been changed. The chassis and speaker are beautiful with a clean chrome finish. Chassis and controls have been cleaned and lubricated. The radio plays great receiving AM and FM and also gets short wave. 22"W x 12-1/2"H x 9"D. $295.00. (0260791)

This wireless remote microphone would work in conjunction with any AM radio with a range up to 75 feet. There are some marks on one side caused by decades of storage next to the wiring. Otherwise it is in as new condition inside and out with no cracks or chips. It is a rare find with the original box and instructions. The box has been written on and is missing a piece of one flap.

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

Zaney-Gill Tombstone Clock Radio w/Original Stand

This Zaney-Gill clock radio dates from circa 1931 and I do not have the model number. In the twenty years I've owned this set, this is the only example I'm aware of. A very similar radio is listed in machine Age To Jet Age 2 on page 346 with the name McCormick. Noted differences include three knobs vs. two, escutcheons, differences in grille cutouts, clocks are different and the chassis would not be the same. There are only two minor issues with this radio. The dial is worn and there is some base veneer missing. The base of course does not show so I never bothered to repair it. This set is in excellent cosmetic condition. The grille cloth is the correct replacement, but the balance appears to be all original down to the power cord. The chassis has been serviced and plays well with strong reception. The clock works and keeps time. There are no chassis bolts and never were. The only thing holding in the chassis is the small wood block in the rear. It is cut so the chassis fits in and it is secured with a screw. Don't miss this opportunity to own this great piece of LA radio history ready for display and preservation. 42"H including the stand. $1,200.00. (0260691)

Zenith G500 Trans-Oceanic

NEW!

Zenith G500 Trans-Oceanic

The Zenith G500 was a transition model introduced in 1949, later replaced by the H500 in 1950. Because of the short production cycle not as as many of these can be found today as the other models. The G500 no longer used the Loctal tubes but changed to seven pin miniature types that would become standard. This is a excellent all original example right down to the power cord. The chassis has been serviced and is very clean. The set receives both AM and SW and makes a great display piece. $269.00. (0260789)

 

Zenith H500

Zenith H500

The quality goes in before the name goes on was first used by Zenith in 1927. Production of the H500 started in 1951. This is a nice example but has a couple issues. There are a number of fine stress hairlines in the plastic face panel. Although these are common to these sets there are several on this. In the front picture of the set you can see the majority of these. In addition the Zenith crest logo in the center of the antenna is missing one of three prongs. Overall it is in very good condition and displays well. The pop up antenna works well. The chassis has been serviced receiving both AM and also SW. $219.00. (0260778)
