This excellent playing tabletop radio is ready for you to proudly display and listen to. It was sold under the Sears & Roebuck brand name "Silvertone" as part of the "Sears Golden Jubilee" which offered a series of radios with different sized gold dials and styles. A five-tube receiver, it covers the broadcast band (550-1850 KC). Wire antenna is needed (supplied). The cabinet was restored before I acquired it and shows quite nicely. It is a bit darker than the images shown, due to camera flash. The electronics were completely restored, replacing all old paper and filter capacitors with modern equivalents. All tubes and resistors were tested and weak or bad ones replaced. Tone control with on-off switch was added. Dial is excellent and illuminates for night use. Tenite escutcheon around dial is excellent. Original Knobs have correct lettering, grille cloth is correct reproduction, original speaker sounds great! 90 day warranty. Aux input (iPod, CD player, etc.) has been added, and can be used with a Bluetooth receiver to stream tunes to the radio. Weighs 14 pounds, 15-1/2"W x 10"H x 9"D.
