 I have been collecting radios for about 50 years and the time has come to find new homes for a few of them.  Hopefully you will find something in my "Attic" you would like to add to your collection.  Click here for my terms & conditions and to learn about my restoration philosophy.
 

 

American Bosch 808P

American Bosch 808P

Original cabinet finish with dings and scratches, mostly on top. Paint missing on knobs. Not restored electrically. Receives stations but hums between stations. Volume control scratchy. Displays reasonably well as it is.  $125.00. (1220021)

 

Atwater Kent 80 Cathedral

Atwater Kent 80 Cathedral

A beautiful radio. Received several stations when I tested at 90V reduced voltage. Electrically repaired (not restored) by someone else. Solid cabinet appears professionally refinished. Only negative: narrow stress cracks in veneer side & top. Knobs original. Grille cloth looks original; speaker excellent. I hate to part with this beauty but I need fewer radios!  $575.00. (1220012)

 

Crosley ACE Type V (1923)

Crosley ACE Type V (1923)

Better than average little Crosley. Cabinet shows the usual wear, dings and scratches. Panel presentable. Knobs original. Panel screws rusted. Inside complete and original. BBT tube has open filament. Weighs 4 lbs unpacked. 11"W x 6"H x 4-1/2"D.  $175.00. (1220026)

 

DeForest D10 or D17 Loop Antenna

DeForest D10 or D17 Loop Antenna

From an attic in Vermont, I am very sure this loop is original. It shows 80 years of age as it should. Only negative, it is missing Deforest label (available as repro). I believe loop fits D-10 and D-17 and likely other Deforests. Attaches to radio with phone plug at base. I can email more photos with detail. These are almost impossible to find in original.  $475.00. (1220025)

 

Early One Tube Home Built Battery Radio

Early One Tube Home Built Battery Radio

Excellent job of building. Includes BB tipped CT-199 (open filament); Crosley porcelain tube socket. Nice panel; frayed wires on Variometer. Untested.  $75.00. (1220019)

 

Gem Chrome Escutcheon Tombstone

Gem Chrome Escutcheon Tombstone

Using tube lineup 2-58s, 1-57, 1-47 & 1-80, I found similar circuits but never identified radio. Radio works quite well but not electrically restored. Most caps replaced with orange drops. Chassis has corrosion. Cabinet can use work. Front nice but sides and top have chips missing and poor gluing job. Grille cloth and knobs look original. Radio possibly rare. 14"H x 10-1/4"W x 7-1/2"D.  $150.00. (1220015)

 

Tuska Superdyne Junior 301

Tuska Superdyne Junior 301

An excellent original Tuska with good tubes and good audio transformers. A few dings and scratches, mostly on the top but that is about all the negative I can say about it. Beautiful front panel and exceptionally nice chassis.  $225.00. (1220022)

Terms of Sale

Payment:  Money order or personal check by mail preferred.  PayPal accepted.  I reserve the right to wait for personal checks to clear.

Warranty:  My customers need to be happy.  I ask that within five days of receipt you check the radio to be sure it is as described and you are happy with it.  If there is any problem I will work to resolve it to your satisfaction.  Please check the section on "My Restoration Philosophy."

Shipping:  Unless otherwise stated in my description, the buyer will pay the exact cost of shipping and I will supply packaging materials for free.  I will pack very carefully and in some instances remove the chassis and/or speaker and either protect in the same box as the cabinet or ship separately.  I will ship by the carrier of your choice within three days of payment.

Descriptions:  I try very hard to describe radios accurately and reveal any defects.  Please ask questions and I will do my best to provide answers and extra photos, if needed.  I prefer communicating by phone before finalizing any sale.

Prices:  Radios are priced according to several factors including condition, desirability, and today's market.  If you think my price is too high and would like to make a reasonable offer please feel free to do so.  If I do not accept your offer, please do not be offended.

Sales outside the USA:  Generally I prefer sales within the USA only.  If you are in another country and interested in one of my radios, please email me.

My Restoration Philosophy

Because the desired level of radio restoration is different for different collectors I try to leave my radios as close to original as possible and let the new owners restore them their way.  If a cabinet is really bad I will either restore the finish or refinish it.  I have always tried to collect radios with good solid cabinets and chassis relatively free of rust.  I "repair" many of my radios to make them work but none of them should be considered "restored."  If they receive stations reasonably well they likely have no major electrical problems such as bad transformers or coils.  Most of my radios are 60 or more years old and the components have suffered from sitting around all these years, so I do not recommend playing them for extended periods.
