Airline 62-486 (1937)

Airline 62-486 (1937)

Awesome two-band Airline waterfall with slight wrap-around design with Deco flair. Totally original finish and what appears to be original grille cloth as well. This is a battery set that plays very, very well off a power supply built from an old computer power supply. Look at the brightness of the eye tube which works very, very well as it should. Eye tube is rather rare for a battery set. This is a true classic all the way around and plays great on both BC and SW bands. Notice it still has complete factory sticker in top inside of cabinet and factory inspection cardboard tag attached. Extremely nice. Play/display from my collection to yours. Thanks for looking.  $299.00. (1640019)

 

American Bosch 640 (1936)

American Bosch 640 (1936)

Here is a very nice, clean, recently restored deco American Bosch with factory tags. This is a two-band, six-tube, low profile 1936 model that plays well on both bands with short antenna wire. Of course, most short-wave is evenings nowadays. The back lighted tri-colored dial shows so well and the vibrant colors and red pointer really make it "pop;" pics don't do it justice, but the pics should be considered as part of the description. About 19"W x 9-1/2"H x 8"D.  $235.00. (1640016)

 

Arvin 441-T "Hopalong" (1950)

Arvin 441-T "Hopalong" (1950)

Great old radio in working order. Includes a Hoppy Comic Book in wonderful condition, a hard back book from 1943 in very good condition and all pages, and a good legible operating booklet (repro) to help complete this wonderful collectible from days long gone. Please see the last photo for the extras that compliment the working Hoppy radio. It has the original back. The paint is in overall very good condition with very few imperfections that should show in pics.  $495.00. (1640005)

 

Delco R1229 (1947)

Delco R1229 (1947)

Great old two-toned Delco in all original condition including factory back. Near perfect and working well. One band, six tubes. Very nice. From my collection to yours.  $165.00. (1640007)

 

Elgin 135 (1933)

NEW!

Elgin 135 (1933)

Cool looking small wooden set with black backlit dial. Excellent condition, but in as found and not working condition. Cannot find much info on Elgin company in the books or online. Selling "as is" and for display or you fix it. 10"W x 7-1/2"H x 6-1/2"D; weighs 8-1/2 pounds.  $145.00. (1640025)

 

Emerson 250-AW (1933)

NEW!

Emerson 250-AW (1933)

Small tabletop, totally recently restored and beautiful. It has a cathedral top and the metal Emerson tag intact. Beautifully toned bottom trim mold which really makes it "pop." Obviously an Ingraham cabinet. Plays very well. From my collection to yours.  $225.00. (1640023)

 

Emerson AX-217 (1938)

Emerson AX-217 (1938)

Very nice very small, all original, wooden Emerson with Ingraham cabinet. Beautiful and plays very well. Factory back I do believe. Nice lighted dial and clear cover. From my collection to yours. I know you will like it if you are into small and Emerson. Plug and play. Nice! Five-tube, midget, about 9"W x 5-1/2"H x 3-1/2"D.  $189.00. (1640022)

 

FADA 209 (1941)

FADA 209 (1941)

Beautiful Deco, small FADA Bakelite table set with pumpkin Catalin handle. No cracks nor repairs and plays very well. Factory back with factory prints. These normally came out with no handle or with a tortoise shell one. This is only the second one I've seen with Catalin. Like other parts during this era, the factories simply used what was available to them. Plug and play. Small at about 10"W x 6"H x 4"D.  $169.00. (1640021)

 

General Electric K-51-P (1933)

General Electric K-51-P (1933)

What an awesome set. Very unusual Deco design with Repwood doors depicting Christopher Columbus. This should be in a museum somewhere, I suspect. The doors open and slide inside the cabinet revealing an awesome radio with original grille cloth, knobs, etc. Actually the radio is all original, including finish. It truly is a unique and awesome piece. Plays very, very well. All my radios are from a smoke-free home.  $495.00. (1640011)

 

Gilfillan 6H Tombstone (1942)

Gilfillan 6H Tombstone (1942)

Absolutely gorgeous and seldom seen 1942 Gilfillan tombstone with original finish including the top and bottom photo-finished bands. Although the photo doesn't show, the eye tube works correctly and is very green (not the blue tint as shown) and opens/closes as it should. It is really eye-catching and really makes the radio "pop." The switch on the side is factory, but no idea as to the function. Notice the original factory "Gilfillan" tag between knobs and factory wooden back. The original clear dial cover has slight separation in corner, but hardly noticeable but did want to point it out. It has recently been capped and all tubes, etc., checked/replaced where needed. Great sound and volume. Six tubes and two bands. Nice addition to most/all collections. Plug and play/display.  $275.00. (1640003)

 

Philco 41-231 (1941)

Philco 41-231 (1941)

Beautiful Art Deco 1941 Philco with wrap-around/waterfall design. Original finish I believe with great patina. Push buttons, two-band, BC & SW. Six tubes. Plays well. Please look at all the pics as they should be considered part of description.   $195.00. (1640013)

 

Philco TP-12 (1939)

NEW!

Philco TP-12 (1939)

Very small wooden set with what appears to be original finish. Beautiful inlays as you can clearly see. Recently restored and plays well. Nice and clean chassis and cabinet. Only 9000 of these were made according to online Philco site.  $145.00. (1640024)

 

Silvertone 1660 Cathedral (1933)

Silvertone 1660 Cathedral (1933)

Here is a rather small, five-tube, totally restored Silverstone. The previous owner used beautiful/correct toning for accent. This is ready for play/display and what a great 1933 for your collection. Plays very well. I believe there were two versions of this model and this is the three-knob or late version.  $245.00. (1640002)

 

Stewart-Warner R-466 (1940)

NEW!

Stewart-Warner R-466 (1940)

Beautiful little two-toned wood, mostly original finish with the normal scuffs for a 78 year old radio. Look closely at all the fluting and step down top which water-falls down the front. Recently restored with all tubes and caps replaced as needed. Plays very well all across the dial. Nice lighted dial as well. Weighs approx. Very clean and rust-free chassis as you can plainly see. Really a nice and seldom seen S-W. 12-1/2"W x 7-1/2"H x 7-1/2"D; weighs about 11 pounds.  $235.00. (1640026)

Tom's Terms:

Goal: My intent is to sell quality radios that are clean and complete, and in nearly all cases working.  I try my best to accurately describe my radios and provide close up, clear photographs to show any defects if present.  Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.  If they came from my personal collection, chances are they are either "recent restores," "older restores," "unrestored but working," or "unrestored & not working," all of which I will make notation in my descriptions.  Also, pictures should be considered as part of the description.  Very few radios are museum quality and very old, so they are not perfect.  Of course, beauty or perfection is in the eyes of the beholder, but I am picky myself.  Having said that, I think my prices reflect the rarity, condition, quality, completeness, etc.  I want satisfied customers so they will become return customers and even tell other collectors about me and my radios.  Although selling for $$ is important, this is still and always be a hobby for me.  Saving radios from the dumpster, bringing them back to life, collecting, and in this case putting them up for adoption is more fun than the law should allow.  Please ask questions before we make a deal.

Packing and shipping: Prices listed do not include shipping or insurance costs.  Unforeseeable things can happen in shipping and given fragile nature of antique electronics, I am not responsible for shipping damages.  I prefer sending through UPS, but USPS and FedEx are also available.  I strive to get the radio to you in the same condition as it left here.  Proper packing is important.  I personally package all radios and use plenty of packing material to make sure it gets to you safely.  This may cost more and take more time, but it's worth it to get the radio to you safely.  Also, I insure all radios in case there is damage or it gets lost in shipping.  This is not my first rodeo for packing & shipping.

Payment: Once a buyer agrees to purchase a radio through email, I will hold for five days until payment is received.  If still unpaid after five days, the radio is once again for sale to other viewers on the website.

1) Money Order or Bank Cashiers Check.
2) PayPal funded from your checking account or PayPal balance only.  No credit card payments.
3) Personal checks (must clear prior to shipping; usually 5-7 working days).
4) Cash (in-person local pickup only)

Returns:  I want you to be satisfied with your radio.  I will take returns, but these conditions must be met.  You must contact me before returning it, and it must be shipped within four days after you receive it.  It must be returned as packed and arrive in the same condition as I sent it, thus please hang onto all packing.  Return postage is at your expense and shipping charges are not refunded.  Once I receive the radio back in good condition, I will refund your money.

Note:  I will not ship outside the CONUS. Sorry, Lower 48 only.  I will not ship to P.O. boxes.
