Airline 84BR1517A (1948)


Airline 84BR1517A (1948)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
Among the first AC sets to use miniature tubes, although only two were used out of six. Originally 12BD6s, now obsolete but they have been replaced by the more common 12BA6s and the rest of the tubes are the traditional AA6 bantam (octal GT) tubes save the 12SK7s. The radio plays loud and clear, all caps replaced, fully restored and my guarantee applies. The unpainted Bakelite cabinet is pristine, check out the black and brown marbling. It only has one small crack in the very bottom about 2", virtually unseen and has been professionally repaired with epoxy on the inside. Guaranteed not to crack out. The radio was made by Belmont (the BR in the model number stands for Belmont Radio) using a very popular chassis they made in the late thirties through the forties even after the war; a sidewinder tuner with cam operated pushbuttons and a slide rule dial. 9 pounds.
