All radios work when shipped unless add states "not tested, or not working."  I will use USPS unless buyer has a preference.  PayPal or money order are the payment options.  I go to great lengths to make sure the set is operating fine when shipped.  If you have an issue, then contact me.  I will refund payment received, less shipping costs, if you are unhappy and the radio is returned.

My website has a little info about me, but basically radios have been a hobby since I was about 13, off and on.  I also volunteer for Maritime Historical Radio Society and repair receivers and transmitter equipment at the National Park Service, Bolinas and Pt. Reyes, California.  I do collect sets, but need to pare down.  I prefer "boat anchors" and have a number of very nice sets from the 1920's to 1960's.  I have a first class FCC license for various classes of equipment, but let it expire years ago.
 

 

Blaupunkt Derby Deluxe Multiband Portable

Blaupunkt Derby Deluxe Multiband Portable

Wow! This one sounds amazing. 1960's era portable radio. Uses six "D" cells or a wall wort (included). No battery corrosion in compartment, all functions work well. AM, FM, shortwave (5.8-7.5 MC,) and long wave (150-280kc). Press to light dial, bass, treble, volume, AFC control for FM, pull out antenna. Good cosmetics, almost great. Carry handle/stand, pull up antenna on a swivel. Dark grey and chrome. Substantial build, not a flimsy unit. Truly a nice radio like Blaupunkt built for Porsche and Mercedes.  $175.00. (1400076)

 

Freed-Eisemann 30 (1926)

Freed-Eisemann 30 (1926)

This is an unrestored Neutrodyne TRF six-tube set, vintage 1926. Missing two lower knobs and all tubes. Otherwise in good condition. Both tuners work. So crack out those 01A tubes and get her going! Nice sloped front. Heavy so shipping will reflect that. 19"W x 11"H x 10"D.  $75.00. (1400070)

 

Jackson Bell 62 "Swan" (1930)

Jackson Bell 62 "Swan" (1930)

Here is a pretty Swan TRF radio. It was restored years ago and has been in my collection for a while. Cabinet is beautiful, no veneer cracks, chips, missing pieces. Chassis was rebuilt and I just dusted it and fired it up. Works fine, needs external antenna wire to get stations. Volume/off control, tuning and tone. six-tube set. Good volume and tone. It's a smaller cathedral with light toned woods. so it stands out nicely from the dark, somber run of the mill sets.  $495.00. (1400075)

 

Philco 84 Cathedral (1935)

NEW!

Philco 84 Cathedral (1935)

A lovely smaller cathedral. Original: grille cloth, line cord, dial, knobs, pointer. All visible tubes are old style Philco (one in shield is a National Union). All capacitors have had tar removed from Bakelite shells and new caps installed. All resistors checked. Updates recommended by Philco Forum done. You can see low current draw on meter in photo. No transformer heating. Chassis cleaned, tuning lubed, new dial lamp. Even though it's only a single stage IF radio and very simple, Philco used regenerative coupling (adjustable on the back) to make it sensitive. Comes with service literature. All original paper labels are intact and protected from falling apart. Cabinet has no cracks or lamination issues and a new lacquer finish, a lot better than Philco ever put on! 14"H x 12"W x 8"D.  $185.00. (1400079)

 

Power Tronics "Money Talks" AM/FM Transistor

Power Tronics "Money Talks" AM/FM Transistor

AM/FM transistor "dollar bill" novelty radio. The cool thing is: loud volume activates George's mouth! There is a transducer in the audio circuit that moves the lips. Works fine, new alkaline DuraCell batteries. There is a black FM extension antenna and it does get FM if a local station. PowerTronic "Blabbermouth" is the brand. Probably 1970s-80s era. It is in very good condition, no cracks or chips, some very light scratching on left side of the bill.  $40.00. (1400049)

 

RCA RZG104Y 50th Anniversary Transistor Radio

RCA RZG104Y 50th Anniversary Transistor Radio

Here is a fun item. A new in box RCA 50th anniversary AM transistor radio. Serial #93015516. A white shell radio still in wrapper with unopened RCA battery, earbud, warranty sheet, instructions. Never used.  $25.00. (1400069)

 

Toshiba IC-310 Transistor

Toshiba IC-310 Transistor

Wood toned on black with chrome accents. It is in the original case and in very nice condition. It has a three-position tone control, Phone jack and aux. power input jacks. This uses "C" cell batteries (not included). Cleaned and tested, works very well, no scratchy volume control here.  $55.00. (1400063)

 

Zenith H-500 Trans-Oceanic (1951)

Zenith H-500 Trans-Oceanic (1951)

Here is a very nice H500 that is as old as I am! Overall mechanically and electrically sound. I replaced the Bumblebee caps, some resistors, all tubes are premium, even the 1L6. Included is a spare 1U4 and 3V4 and all the service data. Alignment has been done and its a pretty hot receiver even on the whip antenna. Great tone, all controls cleaned and lubed. Tuning is accurate. Those pushbutton band switches have been carefully cleaned and the felt bumper strips are all in great shape. The "leatherette" is good, slight wear, but not a "shoe polish special." No rips or missing parts. The suction cup accessory is missing, but they never work anyway!  $185.00. (1400078)
