Admiral 4202-B6 "Beetle Plaskon" (1941)
Sold by David Spivey on December 14, 2013
Listed price on date of sale - $179.00
This Beetle set was made by the Continental Radio Corporation for Admiral. The Beetle coloring in this Admiral is very unusual, unlike any other coloring seen in other Beetle models. It's almost like a confetti coloring, very distinctive and beautiful. It originally sold for $19.95. I have had three exact duplicates of this model, and every one had the same small hairline in the bottom grille slat. It must have been some type of manufacturing flaw. It really doesn't diminish the beauty of this radio at all. No other cosmetic issues. A replacement back is in place. The knobs are original. The line cord is in good condition, and the dial lamp works fine. The set has been recapped and is playing well, picking up all my local stations at night, and some distant stations at night. A very beautiful radio. About 11-1/2"W x 7"H x 6-1/2"D.
