Silver 139-JS "To-Na-Coustic" (1937)


Silver 139-JS "To-Na-Coustic" (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The Silver Manufacturing Company was founded in 1890 making swing saws, band saws, jointers and other wood-working machinery. The first mention I could find of radios was 1936 in Chicago, and that they were made by Clinton. Not much information out there on this company's radio production. The 139-JS is a four-tube, two-band (AM,SW) AC/DC TRF radio. We replaced all of the capacitors. The resistors and tubes were checked and replaced where needed. A new power cord, safety fuse and antenna lead were installed. This TRF radio will not support an audio input. The radio takes about 15 seconds to warm up, then plays with good volume and sensitivity across the dial. Gary stripped the Walnut cabinet and refinished ending up with a beautiful "piano" lacquer finish. This rare radio is a conversation piece in any collection and is priced right! 15"W x 9"H x 6"D.
