Minerva W-117 "Tropic Master" (1945)
(metal tube portable radio w/SW)

Minerva W-117 "Tropic Master" (1945)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!

This is a spectacular, original WW2 radio made exclusively for the US military personnel serving in the Pacific theater as a "morale booster." It is a rugged all-metal radio designed for reliable long-range reception in the tropics. It is referred to as the "Morale Booster" as it was used for the entertainment of the soldiers and sailors. The case is beautiful and made of steel. The dial lens is perfect and the dial is lighted. It has excellent reception on AM & shortwave. It also has a tone control and I've added a length of wire for an antenna. Just unroll it and put behind your furniture. Fully restored electronically for reliable daily use. Very heavy at 22 pounds. 14"W x 8"H x 8-1/2"D.
