My Radio Attic is having a SALE!

 

General Electric 676 (1955)

ON SALE
until
March 26

General Electric 676 (1955)

Offered here is this hard-to-find iconic transistor from General Electric. This was one of the first transistors to hit the market debuting in early 1955. It is a four-transistor unit that was powered by a strange 13.5 volt battery that has a weird 3-prong plug. So don't plan on using this as a daily player as it is untested. But as a display unit, it shows well as it has been well preserved. This gem is a great addition to any collection which is trying to feature the initial pioneers of USA made transistor radios, it is clean and without damage. This is also a nice size at only 5-1/2"W and has a solid construction. More photos available upon request. Was $195.00, now $97.50. (0520661)

 

Sampson Radio

Sampson Radio

Offered here is this early six-transistor radio from Sampson. There is no model number listed on it, but RadioMuseum indicates that this was made by Hitachi. Anyway, it is only 3" tall and still plays well on a 9 volt battery. $37.50. (0520643)

ON SALE
until
March 26

Spica ST-600

Offered here is this ivory and gold Spica six-transistor radio from the early 60's. This radio plays great on four "AA" batteries. It is compact at only 6"W. Was $65.00, now $32.50. (0520658)

About Gary's Vintage Gems from the North
About me: I have been interested in transistor radios for as long as I can remember, but a collector of them for over 20 years now. During that time, I have become knowledgeable and learned how to judge quality and what it takes for a radio to become a desirable collectible.

My Mission: It is my mission to offer top quality collectible transistor radios that are clean, functional, and highly desirable. I take measures to assure each one reaches a high level of cleanliness and performance before it is listed. I will try to give you a clear idea of what you are buying so that you can judge the value before you make that purchase. But if in doubt, please feel free to ask any questions before buying.

Living up to my mission statement is how I have been able to sell over 500 transistor radios in almost ten years on the attic. My clients are generally those who desire high quality and know that by dealing with me, they won't receive surprises or waste money by dealing with novice sellers on auctions.
TERMS

Payments:  Using PayPal will assure that your radio will be shipped within 24 hours.  If you prefer, I will also accept money orders or personal checks, but your personal check must clear before I ship.

Shipping:  I use the utmost care in preparing your gem for its trip from the north to you, but the cost of shipping is in addition to the price shown.  I have found that USPS Priority Mail is the most economical way to ship your new radio to you, but I am glad to use a different carrier when requested.

Questions?  In addition to the pictures, I will try to give each radio a clear description detailing the make, model, year, size, cosmetic and playing condition, battery requirements, and any accessories that are included.  If you still have questions, feel free to ask them before purchasing and I will do my best to answer them.

Returns:  If all efforts fail and a return is requested, I will be glad to refund the full purchase price of the radio once it is safely returned at the buyers expense.
