This is a Mid Century Modern, Regency Mandarin Red, TR-4 transistor radio, circa 1956. It is almost mint condition with it's original leather case and ear microphone. I spent some time researching this radio. It is the second of this model the first being the Regency TR-1. The TR-1 sells for $500.00 to $700.00, just for the radio. The main difference between the two is the TR-4 has a aluminum dial plate and the TR-1 has a heavier brass dial plate. Most of the Regency radios I have seen listed for sale are for the radios only and the cases and earphones listed separately. I think this is because the case and earhones are same for both models. My delema is if I were to list this for sale should I keep them together as a set or should I list them separate for the highest profit potential?
