Zenith Royal 500H Transistor Radio Gift Set (1961)
Sold by Gary Ball on December 28, 2013
Listed price on date of sale - $265.00
One of the most cherished gifts of the early 60s was to receive the Royalty of Radio: a Zenith Royal 500H. The 500H was the most technologically advanced radio of its day, and is still considered by collectors to be the finest sounding radio of its size. To make this wonderful gift even more presentable, Zenith offered them as a complete set in a variety of jeweler's quality gift boxes. The Royal 500H is known for its innovative 3" x 5" extended range speaker that produces a rich tone quality. Tuning is easy with the gear reduced vernier tuner. Its introductory price in 1961 was $59.95 and it operates on four "AA" batteries. Well, here it is. This amazing set is presented in a solid white jewelers gift box with a hinged top. Also included in this set is the unused case and strap, unused earphone, operators guide and a simulated battery box. The radio itself is in fantastic original condition and plays as new. 6"H x 3-1/2"W x 1-3/4"D; weighs 18 ounces.
