Regency XR2 (1956)
(plastic transistor shirtpocket radio)

Regency XR2 (1956)

Shortly after production of the TR1, Regency introduced this rare small and unique radio, the XR2. This 2"W x 2"H radio has no speaker or volume control. It has a wired-in earphone much like a crystal radio, but it has two transistors like a boy's radio and is powered by three "AA" batteries. There are actually two versions of this radio as Regency made a more common revised version (XR2A) in 1958. They look the same from the outside, but inside you will notice that the later requires only three "AAA" batteries. This one is the rarer first version. It is in excellent condition and actually works, but very softly. Don't count on listening to it unless you are in a very quiet environment. Makes a great display with its bright red color with gold accents.  $95.00. (0520673)
