One of the radios I had been seeking to fill out my collection. It's in good condition physically and displays well. Purchase included a well preserved leather case. I am still working on getting this radio to play. I replaced all the electrolytics but I appear to have an issue with the osciallator coil or the related transistor as there is no voltage to the emitter. Not giving up, I have a new transistor on the bench and need to pull the oscialltor coil to test for continuity. The is my first 50's transistor and it's amazing how delicate the solder joints have become. Patience will be the key to restoring this radio.
