General Electric H-521-X Beetle "Turbine" (1939)


General Electric H-521-X Beetle "Turbine" (1939)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The GE H-500 "Turbine" series from 1939 were some of the most distinctly designed radios ever produced. They were available in several versions: Oak, Ivory Plaskon, and Onyx Beetle Plaskon. This is the Beetle case version, a very hard radio to find in excellent condition. This model 521-X has five push buttons and a full Plaskon matching Beetle back with a GE "Beam-A-Scope" loop antenna inside. This Beetle case is in near perfect condition, with just a small one inch hairline on the bottom completely out of view. If you are familiar with these Beetle cases, you know that a line like this virtually disappears into the onyx Beetle case. You can barely catch it with your fingernail. The chassis has been checked and everything that needed changing was done. The radio is playing fine, picking up all my local AM stations clearly. The dial lamp shines thru the white dial wheel when the radio is turned on, creating quite an unusual effect. All push buttons and knobs are original. It's a small radio at about 9"W x 5-1/2"H x 5"D.
