I grew up with this TV and would love any info on it. It is a 1953 or 1954 RCT Victor "The Carroll." I would like any information that anyone has on this make and model.

They sure knew how to make a television set back then because this set works with a good set of rabbit ears, antenna or wire hanger.

    I think you mean 'RCA-Victor'...

    Yes, sorry about the typo.

    Where did you get "The Carroll" from, is there a label on the back with a model number?

    My parents purchased it new in 1953 or 1954. Here is the info on the back of the TV;

    There is a medal tag that says ... 17 TC 240
    Serial No ... 2519
    Amps ... 1.6

    Also a sticker that says ...
    "Elite Television" LA3-0777

    I am not sure what the numbers on the plate or stickers mean, just wanted to provide all of the info on the back of the set.
