Silvertone 6218 (1939)

Silvertone 6218 (1939)
Here we have our second farm battery set offered for sale, however Blake has installed a transformer, so this radio will now use 120VAC. I couldn't find any information on this radio, but I did find out that Sears sold a lot of battery sets, probably due to their availability through their catalogs. The fact they were still selling farm radios up to 1950 tells me there was still a need for them, that it took several years to get electricity to everyone in rural areas. The seven-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio is a very good performer on both bands. Blake has replaced all of the capacitors, checked tubes and resistors, replacing where needed. A new power cord, audio cable and a safety fuse were installed. The radio has a new, bright and active eye tube and has great sensitivity across the dial The radio cabinet is original. Blake cleaned it up and it has original knobs and push buttons. The dial scale is original and like new. A large, unique radio that's in fantastic condition. 21"W x 11"H x 9-1/2"D.  $429.00.
