Monarch Tombstone
(wood tube tombstone radio)

Monarch Tombstone

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

If you are the kind of person who likes to have something nobody else has, and you don't mind not knowing what it is, this is the radio for you. All I know about this radio is that it says Monarch on the escutcheon. Manufactured by Continental Radio and Television Corporation of Chicago, Illinois, about 1935. The same radio was sold under the Admiral brand as their Continental B600. I bought this radio as part of a collection. It has an amateur restoration done by a previous owner. While it is not up to my standards it isn't too bad, and is all and all an attractive radio. There is one small crack in the speaker grille and a few less then perfect places in the staining work. The dial glass is not original. I put in a full set of good tubes and gave it a full alignment. It plays beautifully and the sound is nothing short of exceptional thanks to a pair of #43 tubes in parallel for the output stage. At 14 inches tall it is smaller than many tombstone radios. If you want to listen to some oldies on your favorite AM station you will be glad you bought this little gem.
