Emerson 108 Mini-Tombstone (1936)


Emerson 108 Mini-Tombstone (1936)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This 1936 mini Emerson ivory Plaskon tombstone radio is one of the most collectible of all Emerson radios. The chassis has been checked by a professional, has been completely recapped, and a resistor added internally to step the voltage down so its original cloth cord does not heat up anymore. The radio plays very well using a length of antenna wire. The dial light is working well also. This is a two-band radio, but the SW band is the old amateur/aviation band, so very little to listen to. The band switch is in the rear. The case is in incredible condition for 80+ year old Plaskon material. There is only one (1) stress approx. 1" (see 4th photo). This was very common to many of these Plaskon cases. This one is quite shiny and retains its original grille cloth, dial, and knobs as well as lighted dial. The radio is missing its back, thus the low price. That certainly does not diminish display value. A really nice example of this model, in this material, and a must for any collection. Very small as tombstones go; about 9-1/2"H x 7"W x 5"D.
