General Electric H530 Micro Tombstone (1938)


General Electric H530 Micro Tombstone (1938)

THIS RADIO HAS BEEN SOLD!
This little General Electric H530 is the epitome of the old expression "ten pounds of sugar in a five pound sack." One of the most compact tombstone radios ever made. GE mounted the chassis in an unusual vertical orientation to save space. The result is a little tombstone radio that is just as cute as it can be. I put an extremely nice finish on this little jewel, but it still has a few minor flaws. The dials, like all of these little H530s, have some of the graphics worn off, and no replacements are available. The back cover and antenna are not original. I had to make the knobs. The grille cloth is original, but I thought not bad enough to replace. Picks up local stations fairly well. External antenna connection for more distant stations. I have installed a cable for your mobile devices. All new capacitors, resistors as necessary and a good set of tubes for years of trouble-free service. I even stuffed new capacitors into the chassis mounted filter can to preserve original appearance and performance. I'm losing my shirt on this radio, but I hope you will agree that it is just too endearing to not save it. 10"H x 8"W x 6-1/2"D.
