Stewart-Warner "Varsity" (1939)


Stewart-Warner "Varsity" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
As you can see from the pics, the original blue paint is in good shape with only minor wear, and the cabinet is perfect. The radio is actually a four-tube super-het with a re-gen circuit for greater sensitivity at the top end, with a 5th ballast-tube serving only to choke the AC voltage down to usable levels. The ballast is now just there for looks, having been bypassed by a diode/resistor network for greater reliability. The grille cloth and AC cord are replacements, and the radio has been serviced and aligned, with nice tone from the original 5-inch field-coil speaker. These mechanical push-button radios were apparently produced in a variety of school colors for that deserving student!
