Crosley 517 "Fiver" Mini-Tombstone (1937)


Crosley 517 "Fiver" Mini-Tombstone (1937)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
The compact 1937-38 517 "Fiver" tombstones are very popular probably due to their smaller size and the famous gold mirror dial. This is a very nice example; a "Fiver" mini-tombstone is an impressive radio for its small size! It picks up many stations with only a short antenna wire. The Model 517 is a five-tube, two-band (SB,SW) radio and 5-inch speaker. Many Crosley models used the chassis or the name "Fiver." The original knobs, speaker and chassis are present, along with what appears to be original grille cloth. The dial is very colorful, is backlit and has a mirror behind it which makes it "pop." It has been electronically and cosmetically restored by previous owner and works extremely well, covering the broadcast (550-1700 KC) and Shortwave (6-15 MC). The finish is excellent and was done in clear and toned lacquer. The wood is simply beautiful as pics should show. It has a new power cord and Chassis is very clean and the factory sticker is inside the cabinet. Speaker cone is perfect. 12-1/2"H x 10-1/2"W x 7 1/2"D; 10 lbs.
