Click on any image below for a closer look.  All shipping costs are paid by the buyer.

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.
 

 

Crosley 51 (1925)

Crosley 51 (1925)

Crosley made a ton of inexpensive radios that worked well and had some clever cost cutting ideas. This little two-tube regen uses a pair of coils that slide together with a front panel control for the regenerative coupling. All connections are on the front. Batteries, antenna, ground, head phones. This one is in very nice condition with serial number tag under the lid, a pair of 201A tubes and original throughout. It is untested.  $185.00. (1400089)

 

Crosley VI (1923)

Crosley VI (1923)

Crosley made a ton of inexpensive radios that worked well and had some clever cost cutting ideas. This little two-tube regen uses a pair of "book" condensers for tuning. All hookups on the front panel for batteries, antenna, ground, headphones. This is in very good original condition with warranty card, serial number card, hookup diagrams in lid, Dept of Radio Engineering Approved tag on back. Untested.  $285.00. (1400090)

 

DeForest F5-M DC Radio (1925)

DeForest F5-M DC Radio (1925)

This is an overall nice F5 with original inspection tag. This version has the built in horn speaker which makes a large cabinet. I think it is the "M" mahogany version. All complete and original except the horn driver is a later unit that is incorrect, but proper manufacturer. It comes with a set of good brass base 01A tubes. I made new wires for battery and antenna connections, but original wires are included. The grille was crushed in so I repaired it and installed a new grille cloth. Finish and all hardware is original. Untested and as is. It is heavy and large so shipping will reflect that. Email me for many more pictures.  $395.00. (1400087)

 

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)

 

Freshman Masterpiece (1925)

Freshman Masterpiece (1925)

A very nice Masterpiece with a full set of Cunningham 301A tubes! Overall in great shape. Notice the log chart? Completely full! All Midwest stations from Kansas City to Chicago. This is untested, but appears to be complete. It was on a high shelf and I need to "thin the herd," so there will be more radios coming up.  $175.00. (1400084)

 

General Electric 422 (1951)

General Electric 422 (1951)

I can't get a true photo of the swirly cabinet, but it is stunning! Almost a purple background and black swirls. Really unique. Six-tube circuit, all GE tubes which I believe are original. Clean inside and out, good performer, no cracks or chips. There is a little gold discoloration on dial base, otherwise close to new. No wear around knobs or on knobs. No rodent or rust damage on chassis. Dial lamp moves with pointer. All recapped, aligned, checked and OK. Comes with schematic/service info. About 14"W x 9"H x 8"D.  $85.00. (1400082)

 

King-Hinners Neutrodyne TRF (1925)

King-Hinners Neutrodyne TRF (1925)

King Radio Co. made this in about 1925 and is a standard five-tube TRF set with all tubes. It is untested and in very nice original condition. My camera is not great, so it is hard to get the neat detail on a unique front panel. It is a reddish brass color with golden dial highlights. Pretty set. Pretty large and heavy, so shipping will reflect that. More radios coming.  $150.00. (1400086)

 

Kolster 6D Battery Radio (1926)

Kolster 6D Battery Radio (1926)

Here is a very nice Kolster, which was the brand name for Federal Telegraph Co. sets. They only lasted five years and then vanished, supposedly from internal corporate problems. It is a five-tube TRF set with single dial tuning (no tubes). It is intact and still has the battery umbilical cord in great condition. Uses 201/301A tubes. Hookup and battery info sheet is still attached. Cabinet is in very nice original condition, no chips, cracks or missing pieces. Untested. Rather heavy so shipping will reflect that.  $75.00. (1400088)

 

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
