Emerson 108 (U5A) Mini-Tombstone (1936)

Emerson 108 (U5A) Mini-Tombstone (1936)
Sold by David Spivey on October 21, 2019
Listed price on date of sale - $319.00
This 1936 mini 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 its resistance line cord (curtain burner) replaced with a new safe cord. The radio plays very well using its original antenna wire. The dial light is working as well. This is a two-band radio, but the SW band is the old amateur/aviation band. The band switch is in the rear. The case is in remarkable condition for Plaskon material. There are no cracks, chips or breaks, just a couple of faint lines no more than one eighth inch on the top, common to Plaskon cases, not distracting at all and hardly worth mentioning. The radio has its original complete Plaskon back on the set. A really nice example of this model in this material, and a must for any collection. About 9-1/2"H x 7"W x 5"D.
