    While going through an antique mall in Cincinnati, I came upon this little gem. It was marked $15 so I did not bother to make an offer, I'm sure it was worth that. I think this is from the mid 50's and probably one of the first for Sharp. The case is blue and the grill has a slight impression that will need to be straightened as well as a little bit of ink that was added to make an arrow on the tuning dial. If anyone has information or details of this radio, please chime in and thanks for looking
    I added a partial picture of my collection. This is a custom shelf I made out of oak and it measures 4 foot by 8 foot and hold about 30 radios per shelf.

      It's in the Norman Smith book on page 96. He lists it as a 1958 model with a value of $100-125.... You see them on ebay from time to time. Super cool old radio! I love it... and your collection....
