    Model 77 1930-31

    Zenith's Model 77 was introduced in late 1930. The Depression had halted sales of the more expensive radios, so Zenith cut costs wherever they could. The Model 77 was housed in the same cabinet as the earlier Model 54 and 64 but whether the 77 used surplus cabinets from the proceeding year or new cabinets of the same old style is not known. The built-in loop antenna used in the 54 and 64 was eliminated as another cost-cutting measure. However, the tuned input, tuned output TRF circuit remained the same and an improved power supply was added. The Model 77 was not produced in any significant quantity.

    Soory, but the model number is 52 or 552 and is from 1930.
    It was sold in 1930 for 275$. Difference between 52 and 552 are electronic cuircut. It has built in one automatic Tuning with wire strings.
