Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1936)
Zenith 5-S-29 Tombstone (1936)
NEW!In 1936, the Rural Electrification Act of 1936 started to set up rural areas in America with electricity. Zenith dropped prices and started producing table radios with smaller black dials. Zenith sales jumped significantly, and more and more people were hired. The 5-S-29 is a five-tube, three-band (SB,SWx2) radio. The smaller dial had the multi-color bands and "split-second" tuning. All of the capacitors have been replaced. The resistors and tubes were checked, and out-of-tolerance components were replaced. A new cloth power cord, external audio cable, new antenna lead and safety fuse were installed. The cabinet was stripped and refinished using the best products available. This particular cabinet has the desirable maple band around the bottom creating a beautiful contrast to the walnut veneer. A cool design feature was the metal bezel, which is just a smaller version of the console bezels. The original knobs, chassis and reckoned speaker were used, and a new period-correct grille cloth installed. Once again, if you are looking for this radio for your collection, it doesn't get any better than this! 18"H x 13"W x 9"D.  $829.00. (1600365)
