My Radio Attic is having a SALE!

 

Addison 55 (1946)

Addison 55 (1946)

Collectors associate Addison with the stunning line of highly prized and expensive Catalin radios produced by this Canadian maker. This seldom found plastic model is cute as a button with a crisp dial and gorgeous marbleized knobs. It's also rather unique because the entire cabinet is a single molded piece sitting on top of the metal chassis. That allowed the designers to carve a convenient carry handle into the back and eliminate the usual flimsy cardboard back. Oddly, this radio has no dial lamp for illuminating the dial at nighttime. This radio weighs 6 pounds and measures 10-3/4"W x 6-3/4"H x 8"D.  $189.00. (1340082)

 

Admiral 69C60 (1951)

Admiral 69C60 (1951)

Just imagine this little beauty in an "I Love Lucy" episode or in someone's kitchen in the 1950's or 1960's. Admiral made all sorts of great little radios like this but in very drab colors. I had a professional auto body painter transform it into a glowing masterpiece of mid-Century Lemon-Lime beauty. If you've ever had auto body work performed, you know my price is exceptionally reasonable! The electronics have been restored and it plays wonderfully. It even has a nearly perfect cardboard back. This adorable radio weighs 5 pounds and measures 10-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 6"D.  $195.00. (1340068)

 

Airline 14WG-518 (1942)

Airline 14WG-518 (1942)

This beautiful Montgomery Wards Airline radio has a very stylish and glossy brown Bakelite finish with an amazing gold dial. The chassis has been properly restored with a new power cord. It plays just as great as it looks. This radio weighs 6 pounds and measures 10-1/2"W x 7"H x 6-1/4"D.  $189.00. (1340083)

 

Airline 62-325 (1934)

Airline 62-325 (1934)

I consider this an investment grade radio because you simply won't find a more perfect example. This little gem still has the original high gloss brown Bakelite finish, cardboard backing and labels in near perfect condition. It functions flawlessly and you'll be proud to display it. I purchased this directly from the owner of the legendary Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile" and you'll find this radio). 9"W 6-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  $229.00. (1340064)

 

Aldens 5000 (1947)

Aldens 5000 (1947)

Long before the Internet, companies like Sears, Montgomery Wards and Aldens thrived by selling products from their giant catalogs. And, just like Sears and Wards, Aldens contracted with radio manufacturers to create their own private branded radios. The stepped cabinet design on this radio is very unique and eye pleasing. It still has the high gloss finish desired by all collectors. I purchased stunning little gem directly from the owner of the famous Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to read more). This radio plays very well because it was restored by the Radiophile master himself. This radio weighs 5 pounds and measures 10"W x 6-1/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  $209.00. (1340091)

 

Arvin 58 (1939)

NEW!

Arvin 58 (1939)

The Arvin 58 is nearly impossible to find. This gleaming black Bakelite beauty is one of those radios you just can't stop looking at because it's so gorgeous. In my opinion, Arvin produced some of the most striking radios at the pinnacle of Art Deco design. I've admired this radio so much I've never taken the time to have it electronically restored, so it's sold as a non-working, as-is radio. The chassis appears complete so an electronic restoration may be fairly easy. It weighs 8 pounds; 11-1/2"W x 8"H x 7"D.  $379.00. (1340117)

 

Arvin 417 "Rhythm Baby" (1937)

Arvin 417 "Rhythm Baby" (1937)

Here's a marvelous example of Arvin's smallest radio in their "Rhythm" series. Their advertisement read, "A grand little table set for son's or daughter's room, for your bedroom, recreation room or wherever an extra set is needed." This one works and looks spectacular. It was previously restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. 11"H x 9"W x 7-1/2"D.  $389.00. (1340065)

 

Arvin 444 (1946)

ON SALE
until
April 17

Arvin 444 (1946)

Immediately after WWII, almost everyone could afford a radio and demand was sky high. Arvin fulfilled a need for inexpensive radios meant for playing in secondary areas of the home such as the kitchen or a bedroom. This pint sized metal radio isn't much taller than a 12-oz can of Coke, yet it plays as well as you would expect for an inexpensive little portable. Most of these were quickly tossed in the trash or neglected once transistor radios came along, so finding one in such great shape is impossible. There are a few little scrapes (see the left front edge) but it's one of the nicest examples I've ever seen. Touch it up or leave it as-is. A prior owner restored it. 6-1/2"W x 6"H x 5"D.  Was $119.00, now $89.00. (1340028)

 

Coronado 43-8353 (1947)

Coronado 43-8353 (1947)

Here's another wonderful radio I purchased directly from the owner of the Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this radio). The deep chocolate brown glossy finish on this Bakelite radio is impeccable so you know it's been treasured by its former owners. In fact, the original buyer cherished it so much, she kept the original owner's manual, station ID tabs, and even the sales receipt! That's right, it was purchased at Gambles, The Friendly Store, for $29.95. It has the big pushbuttons just like Grandpa's old car and plays beautifully. How many 70 year old radios look this new and include a tangible link to the original owner's past? It weighs 9 pounds and measures 12-3/4"W x 9"H x 8"D.  $249.00. (1340070)

 

Crosley 515 (1935)

NEW!

Crosley 515 (1935)

Powell Crosley was a legendary manufacturer of automobiles and appliances that hand built his first radio for his son. He immediately recognized the potential for radios and quickly launched his newest business. Crosley radios were very popular because they combined value, design and performance. This is a petite little radio that does not take up much space. The cabinet is completely original but has a few areas of normal finish loss so I'd rate it a strong 9+ on a 10 point scale. I would never consider it a candidate to be refinished; it's only original once! This radio was painstakingly restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. It plays exceptionally well and would be an outstanding addition to any collection. It weighs 12 pounds and measures 12"H x 10-1/2"W x 8-1/4"D.  $295.00. (1340110)

 

Delco 1102 Tombstone (1935)

Delco 1102 Tombstone (1935)

The peak of Art Deco style was reflected in radio designs from the mid to late 1930's. This fairly uncommon Delco tombstone set is one of the most attractive of the era. In terms of style, the spectacular bookmatched wood veneers with inlays, the arrangement of the simple grille bars and the dial escutcheon set this radio apart from the competition. The cabinet has been expertly refinished and the chassis has been correctly restored for many more years of enjoyment. This radio weighs 21 pounds and measures 16-1/2"H x 13-1/4"W x 9-1/2"D.  $389.00. (1340087)

 

Detrola 105A Rome (1936)

NEW!

Detrola 105A Rome (1936)

Originally selling for $15.90, this little Depression Era radio was sold to families who wanted a second set for the bedroom or those who couldn't afford a larger radio in the family room. Made in Detroit, this petite radio featured the busy "Network Dial" that gave the impression you could pick up stations across the globe. Frankly, it performs very well. The sweeping wood side panels were also found on more expensive Detrola sets. The cabinet, grille cloth and knobs are completely original. It has been restored by one of the most talented and experienced technicians on the east coast and includes a new period correct cloth cord. It weighs 7 pounds and measures 12"W x 8"H x 6-1/2"D.  $329.00. (1340103)

 

DeWald 550 "Dynette" (1933)

ON SALE
until
April 17

DeWald 550 "Dynette" (1933)

This lovely little mantel radio was sold as a very inexpensive "mantel" or "midget" radio during the Great Depression. These compact radios sold like crazy because they delivered high style, moderate performance and low pricing. Examine the flowered detail of the knobs alone and think about the pride a family would take in owning this radio. Sadly, many of these radios were neglected or quickly discarded with the advent of cheap transistor radios. This one has been restored but the resistance line cord is original. 10-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 6"D.  Was $149.00, now $109.00. (1340033)

 

Emerson 106 (1935)

NEW!

Emerson 106 (1935)

Radio companies didn't produce many oval shaped radios. In fact, they're very uncommon. That's because the cost to manufacture a completely oval cabinet with seamless veneer coverage was an expensive process. The chassis slides in from the bottom of the cabinet so the rear of the radio looks almost as nice as the front. You certainly can't say that about many antique radios! Emerson had some of the most elegant cabinet designs of the 1930's and this is a prime example. This fantastic little set has an outstanding original finish and retains the original knobs and grille cloth. A prior owner did a correct electronic restoration with a new power cord and it plays well. It weighs 10 pounds and measures 12-1/2"W x 9"H x 6"D.  $395.00. (1340108)

 

Emerson 330 (1941)

Emerson 330 (1941)

Here's a classic machine age looking radio with those wonderful louvered grille bars. Emerson's dials were always a treat to the eye and this is no exception. The cabinet is outstanding and the chassis has been well restored by a prior owner. It plays very well. This radio weighs 7 pounds and measures 11-1/2"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  $179.00. (1340093)

 

Emerson 587-A (1949)

Emerson 587-A (1949)

Tired of looking at Bakelite radios with that dull, aged finish? Check out this nifty little black Plaskon Emerson. I purchased this from a well known antique radio collector in Atlanta who had the chassis correctly restored. The grille cloth, knobs and cardboard backing are fantastic. It plays like a champ. It weighs 4 pounds and measures 9"W x 5-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  $159.00. (1340077)

 

Emerson 587A (1950)

NEW!

Emerson 587A (1950)

Here's another spectacular radio I purchased directly from the owner of the legendary Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this radio). This ivory Plaskon set resembles a 1950 Ford grille. It's small enough to put on any shelf and will get all kinds of attention from your jealous friends! It plays every bit as good as it looks. It weighs 4 pounds and measures 9"W x 5-3/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  $185.00. (1340095)

 

Emerson 640 Portable (1950)

NEW!

Emerson 640 Portable (1950)

You'd be a very cool cat if you owned this sweet portable radio in 1950. You would impress your friends and sweetheart by taking music on the go with a compact radio -- something that was impossible before 1950. Emerson made these in a variety of popular colors. It's complete and looks great. It might play if you have the correct batteries but there's no guarantee. It takes a standard "D" cell and a 67.5 volt battery that is available on Amazon but quite expensive. It weighs 3 pounds and measures 9-1/4"W x 2-1/4"H x 5-1/2"D.  $159.00. (1340104)

 

Emerson Auxiliary Speaker

ON SALE
until
April 17

Emerson Auxiliary Speaker

This is a darling little Emerson Auxiliary Speaker that was meant to boost the sound of a transistor radio or add "surround sound" to a phonograph player. I don't know the model name so let's just call it the "Super Neat-O." It looks like new in its perfect cream Plaskon cabinet and outstanding grille cloth. It has a nice little plug and sounds pretty darn good when attached to the earphone jack of a little radio. It even has a cute little retractable carry handle. This is the perfect addition your vintage transistor radio or phonograph.  Was $89.00, now $69.00. (1340025)

 

Emerson CS-268 (1939)

Emerson CS-268 (1939)

Those sophisticated Emerson dials gave owners a high degree of confidence they could tune in distant stations. Emerson always had high standards for technical excellence and that's just one reason why they survive to this day. This machine age cabinet is stunning and the chassis has been well restored by a prior owner. It plays quite well. This radio weighs 7 pounds and measures 11-1/2"W x 8"H x 7-1/2"D.  $239.00. (1340094)

 

Firestone Air Chief S-7403-9 (1940)

ON SALE
until
April 17

Firestone Air Chief S-7403-9 (1940)

Firestone sold a lot of radios and other appliances in their tire stores located in rural areas. This fine example retains its original finish with breathtaking veneers. It's been well treated in the past because the knob decals show little wear from normal use. The colorful dial and bullet style knobs add to the charm of this radio. Imagine a family gathered around this radio listening intently for updates on WWII developments! I acquired this radio from the famous "Radiophile" collection (do a Google search to read more about this radio). They performed an excellent electronic restoration. 17"W x 15-1/2"H x 9-1/2"D.   Was $279.00, now $259.00. (1340004)

 

Freshman Masterpiece 675 Tombstone (1934)

Freshman Masterpiece 675 Tombstone (1934)

Words simply can't describe the stunning beauty of this marvelous tombstone radio, so just let your eyes tell the story. This is another jewel I acquired from the owner of the famous Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this set). He restored it to superb operating condition. This model is incredibly scarce and has never been offered on the Radio Attic. It weighs 19 pounds and measures 16-1/4"H x 12-3/4"W x 9-1/2"D.  $569.00. (1340073)

 

General Electric HB-402 Suitcase Portable (1939)

General Electric HB-402 Suitcase Portable (1939)

Here's another example of a nice "suitcase style" portable tube radio from the early 1940's. These were popular for use at the beach, on a picnic or for the home. Imagine the families who depended on them for the latest news developments and entertainment. Rare "beetle plastic" knobs in nice shape. Untested, for display or restoration purposes. 13"W x 9-1/2"H x 4-1/2"D.  $59.00. (1340060)

 

General Electric Superadio II (1987)

NEW!

General Electric Superadio II (1987)

Many AM radio enthusiasts consider GE's line of "Superadios" superior for their ability to tune in distant stations with a warm, clear sound. It also happens to be a fantastic FM radio as well. The Superadio II improved the qualities of the first edition Superadio I, but many were somewhat disappointed with the Superadio III so this may be the best model to own. General Electric wrote the book on high quality portable transistor radios starting with the P780 in 1959 and competed well with Japanese radios through the late 1980's. This is a nearly mint example of the highly desirable Superadio II. It weighs 6 pounds and measures 12"W x 10-1/2"H x 3-3/4"D.  $189.00. (1340115)

 

Grebe MU-1 Synchrophase Late Version (1927)

Grebe MU-1 Synchrophase Late Version (1927)

In my opinion, this is the iconic battery set of the 1920's. Henry Rogers of the Radio Boulevard stated, "Vintage radio collectors have rated the Grebe Synchrophase MU-1 as one of the best, if not 'the best,' Battery-operated TRF-Neutrodyne radio receiver, with performance that is matched with timeless styling." It that's not enough, this particular radio is the LAST variation of the MU-1 line produced from mid-1926 to mid-1927. I'd rate the cabinet a solid "9" on a scale of 10. It's still one of the best I've ever seen and certainly remarkable for a 90 year old radio. I'll include a reproduction Instruction Manual ($35 value). This radio weighs 26 pounds and measures 23"W x 9"H x 13-1/4"D.  $525.00. (1340086)

 

Majestic 5A410 (1946)

Majestic 5A410 (1946)

Buyers flocked to purchase this high performing radio shaped like a streamlined passenger locomotive. Just feast your eyes on those bullet shaped knobs! Although many examples of this radio still exist, very few are as perfect as this one. The high gloss finish is still present and it's been electronically restored to perfection by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. This radio weighs 6 pounds and measures 11-1/4"W x 6-3/4"H x 8"D.  $269.00. (1340092)

 

Motorola 6T (1937)

NEW!

Motorola 6T (1937)

Motorola generally wasn't known for offering stylish radios during the 1930's, but they hit a grand slam with this model. If you appreciate huge, Art Deco styled dials with warm lighting, look at this outstanding example. The cabinet is completely original, which is rare because most need refinishing. Savvy collectors always examine the lettering around the controls to determine how much use a radio had. It appears this one was seldom used because the decals are so crisp. One of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast has electronically restored this big brute for years of future service. This radio weighs 27 pounds and measures 21-1/2"W x 12"H x 10-1/2"D.  $675.00. (1340101)

 

Olympic 6-501-W (1946)

Olympic 6-501-W (1946)

Wow, how about this angled dial and louvered grille bars for style? Olympic certainly knew how to design a radio that stood apart from its competition. The finish retains its glorious high gloss luster. I purchased this jewel from a well known antique radio collector in Atlanta who had the chassis correctly restored. It plays like a champ and looks like a million dollars. My price is much less! It weighs 7 pounds and measures 12"W x 6"H x 5-1/2"D.  $249.00. (1340078)

 

Panasonic RF-2200 (1976)

NEW!

Panasonic RF-2200 (1976)

Many serious radio listeners consider the venerable RF-2200 to be the absolute best portable radio ever sold. You'll have to decide for yourself, but there's a reason these radios are in exceptionally high demand by critical listeners. The sensitivity and selectivity on AM/FM/Shortwave are astounding. The AM reception is greatly aided by the unique gyro antenna which operates perfectly. Plus, this radio has a deep, warm sound seldom found in modern transistor radios. Many years later Grundig tried to copy the appearance of this great radio with their S350DL. However, there's simply no comparison when it comes to performance and quality. It weighs 7 pounds and measures 12-1/2"W x 8-1/4"H x 4-1/2"D.  $369.00. (1340112)

 

Panasonic RF-2600 (1981)

NEW!

Panasonic RF-2600 (1981)

Here's a powerhouse radio that's built like a tank. This was an expensive receiver, not a cheesy imitator like the so-called "boombox radios" from this era. Tune in those elusive AM, FM and shortwave signals with this exceptionally clean example of Panasonic technological superiority. The sound from the large speaker is outstanding. I searched forever to find a nearly mint example of this outstanding table radio. If you enjoy precisely locating a variety of shortwave, FM and AM stations with high sensitivity and selectivity, this vintage receiver is as good as any set produced more than 35 years later! It weighs 7 pounds and measures 13-1/2"W x 11"H x 6"D.  $349.00. (1340114)

 

Panasonic RF-3100 (1982)

NEW!

Panasonic RF-3100 (1982)

This radio was a technological breakthrough, since it one of the very first portable radios to use a PLL frequency synthesizer tuner. What does that mean to you? Its easy to use digital tuning enables precise AM, FM and Shortwave reception. Panasonic was at the height of Japanese radio technological superiority when this was produced. I hunted a very long time to find a near perfect example of this outstanding table radio. If you enjoy locating a variety of foreign shortwave stations along with high sensitivity for AM and FM, this radio is just as competent as any modern set, more than 35 years after it was sold! It weighs 8 pounds and measures 14-1/2"W x 5-1/4"H x 9-1/2"D.  $349.00. (1340113)

 

Philco 37-600 (1937)

ON SALE
until
April 17

Philco 37-600 (1937)

Philco introduced their entry level 37-600 for the low, low price of just $25. Who could resist the lovely, streamlined faux finish front? This interesting radio has a full wood back so the chassis is mounted from the bottom. It even looks cool from the rear side and you can't say that about too many radios! It's been restored and plays OK but these were not high performance radios when new. The plastic dial lens is cracked. 12-1/2"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D.  Was $179.00, now $149.00. (1340035)

 

Philco 41-90 (1942)

Philco 41-90 (1942)

I've always thought Philco engineers designed this radio to be in a wood cabinet but the accountants insisted on using the less costly Bakelite alternative. This is a burly radio tipping the scales at 13 pounds, highly unusual for a Bakelite set. It has superior receiving capabilities thanks to Philco's renown engineering capabilities and the built-in antenna. The chassis has been expertly restored by a prior owner and it plays wonderfully. The original knobs and grille cloth are present but the cardboard back is missing. 14"W x 10-1/4"H x 7"D.  $279.00. (1340084)

 

Philco 70 Cathedral (1931)

Philco 70 Cathedral (1931)

Many antique radio collectors consider the Philco model 70 the quintessential cathedral radio. If you have space to display just one classic radio, this is the one you want. Even better, this example features a nearly perfect original cabinet which has never been "touched up," making it even more desirable to serious collectors. The electronics have been expertly restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. This stunning radio weighs 30 pounds and measures 18-1/2"H x 17"W x 11"D.  $529.00. (1340067)

 

Philco PT-46 (1939)

NEW!

Philco PT-46 (1939)

Knowledgeable collectors have never seen this PT-46 variation with white knobs and preset station push buttons. Everything appears to be original and the white controls certainly give this handsome radio a very smart and crisp appearance. The angled grille bar design also contributes to a wonderful style and the cabinet retains its high gloss finish. The prior owner had it electronically restored but I didn't get great reception when I tested it. It powers up fine but sold as-is. The cardboard backing is obviously homemade but functional. This radio weighs 7 pounds and measures 9-3/4"W x 7"H x 4-1/2"D.  $179.00. (1340107)

 

Philco TH-16 Transitone (1940)

NEW!

Philco TH-16 Transitone (1940)

Here's a 77 year old Bakelite radio that looks like it was manufactured last week. Unlike most radios in the past, Philco engineers designed a giant internal loop antenna into the rear Bakelite segment of this radio. Of course, you can also attach a simple thin wire for even better performance but it's already a great receiver. I purchased this stunning little jewel directly from the owner of the famous Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to read more). This radio plays very well because it was restored by the Radiophile guru himself. This radio weighs 6 pounds and measures 8-1/2"W x 6-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D.  $229.00. (1340105)

 

Pioneer SE-50 Headphones (1972)

NEW!

Pioneer SE-50 Headphones (1972)

As a poor college student in the 1970's, I would fantasize about owning a Marantz stereo receiver, turntable, walnut bookshelf speakers and the Pioneer SE-50 headphones. I recall pouring over catalogs and visiting stereo shops with my buddies but all we could afford were dreams. Many years later I purchased this pristine set from a collector who specializes in vintage stereo gear from the 1970's. They still sound great today and almost look brand new. Even the presentation box suggests they're worthy of the Queen of England. The box weighs 5 pounds with the headphones and measures 7"W x 6"H x 8-1/2"D.  $95.00. (1340100)

 

Silvertone 4565 (1936)

Silvertone 4565 (1936)

If you love enormous radio dials with amazing detail, none are finer than the big gold Sears Silvertone radios. Add in a green tuning eye, a fantastic cabinet design and a high performing receiver and you've got a spectacular radio. The chassis has been painstakingly restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. It retains the original grille cloth, knobs and rear cover. A modern power cord was also installed. The cabinet top has couple of dark marks and there's some finish loss here and there, but nothing that would inspire a serious collector to perform a cabinet restoration. They are original only once. This gorgeous radio plays as great as it looks. It weighs 21 pounds and measures 21"W x 13-1/2"H x 11"D.  $569.00. (1340079)

 

Silvertone 9073B (1950)

Silvertone 9073B (1950)

Here's another wonderful set I purchased directly from the owner of the Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this record player). The deep, glossy Bakelite finish is impeccable so you know it's been treasured by its former owners. The radio plays wonderfully because it's had an excellent restoration. Although the turntable spins, records do not sound great. Perhaps a new needle or cartridge are required. It includes a 45rpm record by Skeeter Davis (woo-hoo) and adapter but also plays 78rpm records. It weighs 10 pounds and measures 10"W x 13"D x 7"H.  $139.00. (1340080)

April 17

Sonora KB-73 Suitcase Portable (1939)

Here's another example of a nice "suitcase style" portable tube radio from the early 1940's. These were popular for use at the beach, on a picnic or for the home. Imagine the families who depended on them for the latest news developments and entertainment. This radio plays well and may have had an older restoration. 14-1/4"W x 10"H x 6-1/4"D.  Was $89.00, now $69.00. (1340059)

 

Sonora RZU-222 (1947)

NEW!

Sonora RZU-222 (1947)

Here's another special radio I purchased directly from the legendary Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile antique radios" to see this radio). A good friend once admired this radio and told me it reminded him of a giant piece of while chocolate candy. I couldn't agree more! Now, there are a just a few tiny paint chips which is quite normal with this radio. It has not been doctored with little dabs of paint. Sometimes well intended owners try to touch up these paint chips but only make it worse since it's nearly impossible to correctly color match this paint. This is the finest example of the ivory Sonora I've ever seen. This factory painted Bakelite radio weighs 8 pounds and measures 11-1/4"W x 8-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D  $295.00. (1340096)

 

Sony ICF-2010

NEW!

Sony ICF-2010

Universally considered the Holy Grail of portable shortwave radios, this Sony ICF-2010 is practically brand new. In fact, it's better than new because the legendary Ray Babbitt, renowned Sony 2010 guru, installed the Kiwa "Blue Dot" Wideband Filter, audio signal path upgrade and memory backup feature. That's a $130 value alone. I am the original owner and probably used this phenomenal radio less than 10 hours. The serial number is 358696. You'll also receive the optional Sony AC wall adapter, original box with packing materials, unused Sony strap, Error Guide, Frequency Log stickers, Before Operating Warning, Wave Handbook, Warranty certificate, Sony Aviation Guide, and unused adapter. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own the finest portable shortwave ever produced. Ship weight 6 pounds; 13-1/2"W x 10"H x 4"D.  $649.00. (1340116)

 

Sparton 67 Tombstone (1935)

Sparton 67 Tombstone (1935)

From the Golden Age of radio comes this beautiful Sparton tombstone with stunning wood veneer cabinetry. It's nearly impossible for the camera to pick up the detailed workmanship that went into selecting the bookmatched veneer patterns. The cabinet is completely original in every way and it's been electronically restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. There are plenty of radios with refinished cabinets, but originals will always appreciate in value with collectors. The chassis is super clean and defies its 80+ year old age. It weighs 21 pounds and measures 17"H x 13-1/4"W x 9"D.  $389.00. (1340072)

 

Stewart Warner 1671 (1937)

Stewart Warner 1671 (1937)

Radio collectors tend to love bright, colorful dials with a streamlined appearance. Carefully examine the Art Deco look of this great dial and you'll want it for yourself. The rounded and sculpted cabinet match it perfectly. This is simply a great little radio that's had an electronic and cabinet restoration so grab it before it gets away. 14"W x 9-1/2"H x 8-1/2"D.  $229.00. (1340038)

 

Stromberg Carlson 58-T Tombstone (1936)

Stromberg Carlson 58-T Tombstone (1936)

This magnificent tombstone style radio was made by a company widely considered to produce the highest quality sets available. The cabinet is an outstanding original but has a nick in the top and a couple of minor scratches. It would be a shame to refinish an otherwise perfect cabinet in my opinion. This radio was painstakingly restored by one of the most talented technicians on the east coast. It plays exceptionally well and would be a real statement piece in any serious collection. This radio weighs 27 pounds and measures 19-1/4"H x 14-3/4"W x 10-1/2"D.  $495.00. (1340085)

 

Stromberg Carlson 130-J (1937)

NEW!

Stromberg Carlson 130-J (1937)

This is not just another high quality Stromberg Carlson radio with phenomenal performance. It's a stunning piece of furniture with the most intricate veneers that have ever been applied to a cabinet. In addition to the rich burl wood, examine the precise book matched veneer sides. This would be the crown jewel of any collection. It has been electronically restored by one of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast. A prior owner did a spectacular job refinishing the cabinet. I've only seen two other examples of this radio in my years of collecting and this rare "J" model appears to be the only one ever offered on the Radio Attic. Warning: shipping will be expensive; local pick up is encouraged. It weighs 31 pounds and measures 22-1/4"W x 13-3/4"H x 10-1/2"D.  $795.00. (1340099)

 

Stromberg Carlson 325-J (1938)

NEW!

Stromberg Carlson 325-J (1938)

Many collectors specialize in Stromberg Carlson sets because they are universally regarded as top quality radios. This model is the more uncommon variation with the push button station tuning option. The dial is simply magnificent. The cabinet is completely original but has a few areas of normal finish loss so I'd rate it a strong 8.5+ on a 10 point scale. The Tenite plastic dial escutcheon has a normal stress crack and some distortion. I would never consider it a candidate to be refinished; it's only original once! A prior owner restored the electronics and it plays very well. It weighs 20 pounds and measures 18-1/2"W x 10-1/4"H x 9"D.  $295.00. (1340109)

 

Stromberg Carlson 420-H (1940)

Stromberg Carlson 420-H (1940)

If you wanted the best money could buy, Stromberg-Carlson radios were sought out for their unmatched performance and beauty. Imagine it is 1940 and your family is anxious to hear the latest news on the war in Europe and Franklin Delano Roosevelt's messages. This mammoth radio had all of the power needed to reliably find signals from across the globe. The cabinet is a near perfect original with beautiful veneers. It has been restored to electronic perfection and it a fabulous receiver even by today's standards. As with most radios from this era that used Tenite plastics for the dial escutcheon, some shrinkage and a small stress crack can be seen in the photo. I've never seen a nicer example of this radio. This big brute weighs 25 pounds and measures 22"W x 11-1/2"H x 9"D.  $489.00. (1340069)

 

Weltron 2001 Space Ball (1971)

NEW!

Weltron 2001 Space Ball (1971)

Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey" was a movie sensation in 1968. Over one-half billion TV viewers watched NASA's Apollo 11 conduct the first successful moon landing in 1969. In response, Weltron brilliantly designed an AM, FM, 8-Track set that resembled an astronaut's helmet! Everyone, including myself, wanted one of these modern music machines on their desk. Not a gimmick, they were excellent performing radios and everybody was demanding an 8-Track tape player for home use. As a poor student, I couldn't afford one but I did buy this outstanding example about 15 years ago from a fellow collector. It plays and sounds great on AM and FM. Even the 8-Track tape player works! And, the buyer will receive these 8-Track tapes with their purchase: The Captain & Tennile, Chris Hillman and Little Feat. It operates on AC power or batteries and weighs 13 pounds. 12-1/2"H x 10-1/2"W x 10-1/2"D.  $395.00. (1340119)

 

Westinghouse H-201 (1949)

NEW!

Westinghouse H-201 (1949)

Here's an exceptionally rare opportunity to own a magnificent New Old Stock radio that comes in the original box! This radio was stored in a closet and never used until I discovered it in 2010. The power cord was never even unwrapped and has the original Westinghouse hang tag. The two "white spots" on the front feet were caused by sitting on the wrapping paper for more than 60 years. They could be touched up but I think it adds to the history. While it's so unusual to find a NOS radio, it just happens to be an very high end model that few could afford in 1949. Reception and performance if off the charts. It's been meticulously restored to replace components which naturally deteriorate over time (think of tires on a 68 year old car). I've only tested it so now it's time for a new owner to proudly display and use this radio. WARNING: shipping will be very expensive; local pick up is strongly encouraged. It weighs 34 pounds and measures 20"W x 14-1/4"H x 11-1/2"D.  $695.00. (1340097)

 

Zenith 4K402D (1940)

NEW!

Zenith 4K402D (1940)

I purchased this amazing battery radio from the owner of the legendary Radiophile collection (Google "Radiophile wood radios" to read more about this set). The case is in outstanding condition after 77 years. And, remarkably, it includes the original sales tag and Zenith battery. The carry handle is very nice but should not be used due to the age and weight of this radio. This is a display only radio and you'll want to read the Radiophile's explanation about preserving the authenticity and originality of this remarkable radio. You simply won't find a better example of this radio. It weighs 12 pounds and measures 11"H x 9-1/2"W x 6-1/2"D.  $295.00. (1340102)

 

Zenith 6-D-316 (1939)

NEW!

Zenith 6-D-316 (1939)

Here's a delightful Zenith in a gorgeous cabinet featuring a variety of wood veneer patterns. This classic little table radio would compliment any atmosphere and be a real conversation piece. I purchased this one many years ago from a well-known collector of high-end Zenith radios. He treated the cabinet to an excellent restoration. It powers up just fine but I had difficulty clearly pulling in stations in my basement office. He represented it as restored but now it's being sold as-is. There's a newer power cord and thin wire antenna. It weighs 9 pounds; 13-3/4"W x 8"H x 6-1/2"D.  $209.00. (1340118)

 

Zenith 7-S-323 (1939)

NEW!

Zenith 7-S-323 (1939)

This powerful monster was one of Zenith's top performing table radios for 1939. It was sold to families who didn't have the floor space for a large upright radio but demanded the same performance in a table set. It has been electronically restored by one of the most experienced and talented technicians on the east coast. A prior owner did a spectacular job refinishing the cabinet. It sports the original grille cloth, knobs and the famous big, black Zenith dial with a new green tuning eye tube. This radio is highly coveted by serious collectors and seldom offered for sale. Warning: shipping will be very expensive; local pick up is encouraged. It weighs 31 pounds and measures 22-1/2"W x 14-1/4"H x 13-1/2"D.  $795.00. (1340098)

 

Zenith K412R (1940)

NEW!

Zenith K412R (1940)

Show this adorable "owl eyes" radio to any grumpy old man and they are guaranteed to smile. There's just something about these unusual looking Bakelite radios that everyone adores. No other radio before or since looks like it, so buy this one now and make your grumpy friends smile. This one has been electronically restored, looks fantastic and takes very little shelf space. This radio weighs 4 pounds and measures 6-1/2"W x 4-1/2"H x 4"D.  $225.00. (1340106)

 

Zenith Y600 Trans-Oceanic (1957)

NEW!

Zenith Y600 Trans-Oceanic (1957)

I've probably owned at least 20 Zenith Trans-Oceanic radios over the years. This is my very last and best example of Zenith's legendary portable shortwave receiver. This one has been well cared for by previous owners and shows almost no sign of being a 60+ year-old radio. It even has the original Dial-O-Map log, Operating Guide and sales hang tag! A prior owner performed an electronic restoration so it plays exceptionally well and would be an outstanding addition to any collection. It weighs 20 pounds and measures 17-1/4"W x 11-1/2"H x 8"D.  $359.00. (1340111)

Policies:

I will hold a radio five (5) calendar days for the first buyer to send an email expressing their intention to purchase the radio.   If payment is not received in full within five (5) calendar days, it is eligible to be sold to any other potential buyer.   I do not accept partial payments, deposits or monthly payment plans.

Once a buyer agrees to purchase a radio, the buyer accepts all responsibility and liability for the safe use and operation of the radio.   Due to the age and design of antique radios, I can not warranty any parts or guarantee performance.  I fully test my radios before shipment.  However, antique radios can suffer from noise, static and reception anomalies caused by household appliances, lighting devices, building construction materials, atmospheric conditions and antenna issues.

If a buyer is not satisfied with a radio they have seven (7) calendar days after delivery to contact me by email.  If a buyer wants a full purchase price refund, the radio must be returned in as-sold condition.  Any returned item must be carefully packed, shipped and fully insured for the original purchase price at the buyer's expense.  The buyer must promptly return the radio so it is received by the seller within fifteen (15) calendar days after it was initially delivered to the buyer.  The buyer must provide the return tracking number.  The seller will refund the full purchase price within seven (7) calendar days after the radio is received and inspected if these conditions are satisfied.

Actual packing, shipping and insurance costs are paid by the buyer.  My radios are professionally packed at the local FedEx or UPS Business Center.  The added cost for professional packing generally ranges from $12 to $25 depending on the size, shape and weight of the radio.  Brand new boxes and packing materials that are properly sized for your radio will minimize the potential for shipping damages.  While other sellers may do a wonderful job packing a radio, I strongly feel these antique instruments deserve to be properly packed by shipping professionals using brand new materials.  There is absolutely nothing worse than destroying a beautiful piece of history with incorrect packing materials, careless workmanship or ill-fitting boxes.  As with all things in life, you get exactly what you pay for and full-time professionals typically do better work than amateur packers.  I charge my exact costs for packing, shipping and insurance--no added fees.

Depending on the package size, distance and weight, your radio will be shipped via FedEx, UPS or USPS Parcel Select.  If your radio is damaged in shipping and you request a refund, you may have to take the radio and all of the original packaging to your FedEx, UPS or Post Office location for inspection.  This is FedEx, UPS and USPS policy.  In certain cases, the shipping carrier may retrieve the radio and packing materials from your home upon request.  International shipping is by prior arrangement only.  No PO Box or APO addresses can be used.

Payment Options:
1) Money Order or Bank Cashiers Check.
2) PayPal funded from your checking account or PayPal balance only.  No credit card payments of any kind through PayPal unless you absorb all fees.
3) Personal checks (must clear prior to shipping).
4) Cash (in-person local pickup).
