Majestic No. 1 "Charlie McCarthy" (1938)
(plastic tube table radio)

Majestic No. 1 "Charlie McCarthy" (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

One of the "holy grail" radios among serious collectors is the Majestic Charlie McCarthy. This is the early production model, the "No. 1" featuring a brass emblem on the front where the later No. 2's had a brass tag with blue painted accents. All capacitors and out of tolerance resistors were replaced, tubes tested strong. Controls cleaned & lubricated, so it plays loud and clear across the dial. For best results the attached long wire should be attached to an external antenna. To maintain originality of his highly desirable set an aux audio cable was not installed. A challenging and tedious cosmetic restoration was performed. The cabinet was repaired and repainted in the correct shade of antique white, and Charlie himself was hand painted to his original glory. A new line cord and back cover top off the thorough resurrection of this classic. Here's a rare opportunity to own one of these iconic sets that don't turn up for sale very often. More pictures upon request. 7-1/4"W x 6"H x 7"D.
