Regency TR-5 (1956)

Regency TR-5 (1956)
Sold by Gary Ball on February 19, 2012
Listed price on date of sale - $80.00
I am pleased to offer this rare Regency leather portable transistor radio. This is the first Regency transistor radio to be offered for sale on the Radio Attic in at least six years. This five-transistor radio was originally sold for $54.95 in 1956 and is a true piece of transistor radio history. It was released shortly after the introduction of the famous TR-1, the world's first transistor radio. The exterior is made of genuine top grain cowhide and is in very good preserved condition. Even the back hinged area and tabs are nice. The handle is strong and complete. The logo, dial and volume knob are nice and complete. The radio pulled stations (softly) when 9 volts were applied to it. The correct large 9 volt battery is not made anymore, but today's smaller 9 volt batteries work just fine. 6-1/2"W x 4"H x 2"D.
