Airline (Mongomery ward) 62-288
Sold on January 20, 2011
Listed price on date of sale - $425.00
Six tubes, BCB only. A transformer powered superhet circuit of solid design, including an eye tube. All needed components and tubes were replaced with new. Cleaned, aligned and lubed. Performs very well with fine sensitivity and ample, full sound. Cabinet is from model 280, the battery powered version of this set, and in excellent shape. Original grille cloth on sides, top cloth replaced with old used contemporary. Flash dial face goes well with eye tube. Creamy white knobs and levers contrast with the dark Bakelite. Nice details in the Bakelite molding and no cracks or chips--plenty of original shine. One lever was missing, subs were made of a marble-like resin cast into molds made from the originals. The new are a better color match to the knobs. A new 6E5 tube was installed instead of a 6U5 with no modifications. It is a bit brighter and more sensitive in this circuit.
