Zenith 6D221 item #1843
Black dial Zenith Model 6D221 radio from 1938. The design of this set may be a variation of the Zenith "Cube" series. It has a beautiful walnut body inlaid with mahogany veneer. I was almost sure it has been refinished but after looking at pictures of other similar sets they all look so close and just maybe I am wrong? The chassis has been restored and it is playing fine on AM and short wave. The original had wood knobs with the Z on them but this one has plastic knobs (the top knob is the on-off-volume control, the second knob is the tuner and the bottom knob is the band switch). This radio sold for $499 in 2018 on the Radio Attic ( so I am giving you a bargain at $150 because of my doubts about the finish and the non original knobs. But who cares as it looks damn good the way it is.

Dual 1212 Turntable item #1839
As good as it gets. Here is a Dual (United Audio, Germany) Model 1212 turntable in great condition on a beautiful walnut base. I am selling some of my vintage gear and this has been a mainstay until now. Complete with an Audio-Technica AT120E cartridge. Copies of all documentation (service manual, instructions, cartridge instructions and specifications). Plenty of information on this turntable on the internet so no need to repeat here. Just in time for that special Christmas present for that special person (you). ON HOLD

Hallicrafters 5R41 Continental item #1834
Beautiful condition Hallicrafters Model 5R41 "Continental". Best I have had. Leather case perfect. Chassis was removed and the dual electrolytic and one tube replaced. Working fine. Uses batteries or AC. Even has original black antenna wire for use on the short wave band. Even snap on back intact. Buy it now for $100 and I will include shipping US 48 only.

Chassis - Admiral TV Model 19A11SN item #1833
The chassis looks complete with some light surface rust removable with a brush. Uses a 7JP4 CRT with filament continuity. The only part replaced appears to be an electrolytic and done not to long ago so this set may still be working. Complete with Riders servicing paperwork.

NordMende Sterling German Radio item #1831
NordMende Sterling tube radio from Bremen Germany. Also marked Norma Luxus USA on back. Great condition and comes with its original cloth dust cover with the NordMende name on it. Plays so well I never opened it up. AM, FM and SW bands. Provision for external FM dipole and AM antennas. External speaker jack as well. A real beauty.

Setchell Carlson 427 item #1829
Sharp machine age look to this Setchell Carlson Model 427 radio. Bakelite case has a nice shine and no cracks or chips. Chassis lifts out from the bottom and is clean as can be. I replaced a bad power cord, everything else looked original, and it is working fine. Has a big 6 inch speaker which is unusual for this sized radio. Definitely a classy looking vintage radio that some people refer to as "frog eyes".

RCA Record Changer and Tube Amplifier item #1825
This is an RCA Model 9-ES-6H record player taken from a small console. It consists of a multi speed record changer (RP-205-B, 24 page service manual included) in good condition with just a little surface cleaning needed, and a 3 tube amplifier (chassis RS-157-B, schematic included). The turntable is working as is the original cartridge (it is a high output ceramic which do not usually go bad like the crystal cartridges). The flip over needle looks good too. The changer plays all speed records (16, 33 1/3, 45, 78) manually or automatically (could use some lubrication of the working parts). It comes with the 45 adapter. The amplifier has a loud hum and should work fine after recapping. The two cables off the bottom of the changer plug into the amplifier and the on/off switch for the changer also turns the amp on and off. Build or buy a base for the changer, mount the amp, add some speakers and you will have a nice set up to play your vintage records.

Emerson AM169 item #1823
Ready for "some" restoration is this Emerson Model AM169 radio from 1938. I say some restoration because the original finish on the sides and front of the wood case is in very good condition, just the top and trim on the bottom need attention. Attention to detail is what makes this one stand out so it should be no secret that this is an original Ingraham made cabinet (nameplate on back). Anyone who knows vintage radios knows that this cabinet maker did a great job on radio cabinets for Emerson and other makers. The radio is both AM and shortwave (band switch on back with its own original knob). I took the chassis out, replaced the dial cord and electrolytics and one other resistor, and it is playing fine. Perhaps a full recapping is in order but at least you are starting with a working radio (this radio must have gotten some good use as there were a number of tubes changed over the years). The field coil speaker was in great shape, as is the original dial and plastic cover. Knobs are original too (on/off volume, tone and tuning). Even has its original wood back in nice shape (try to find this back). Restain and finish the top, do some trim painting on the bottom, and you will have one of the finer Emerson radios in the Ingraham series.

RCA T62 item #1821
What a great looking and sounding radio. This is an RCA Model T62. The wood cabinet features different types of wood trim and the original finish is in very nice shape. I have not done any polishing and it still looks fine. There was an area on the back lower side where some small slivers of veneer were missing, but I stained the background and it is hardly noticeable. It really does not detract from the overall condition of the radio. I serviced the transformer powered chassis and did some recapping, peaked the alignment, and it is working fine. It receives both broadcast and short wave bands. The sound is about the best of have heard and that 6F6 really pumps out the volume. The knobs, the escutcheon, the dial face, the pushbuttons, and the grill cloth are all in excellent condition. Now for the extra features that are sure to please: 1. the radio has a 6U5/6G5 tuning eye tube that is clearly lit and working fine, and 2. on the back is a factory installed slide switch and jack that allows an external input. I plugged in my IPOD using a special cable I make with an RCA phono jack on one end and a 3.5 mm stereo plug on the other, and the sound is perfect (on this radio the volume for the external input is controlled by your device and not the radios volume control). If your looking for that special radio with both looks, sound and features, grab this one. Expect shipping to be in the $25-30 range as its got some weight to it (I will pay half).

Unknown TRF Radio (Climax?) item #1817
I have no idea who made this one but the schematic looks very close to a Climax Model 30-34. It is definitely a 1930's TRF set from the tube lineup (25Z5, 43, 6C6, 6D6, ballast). The cabinet needs some refinishing but I like the old 1930's look so if it were me I would leave alone. I took out the chassis and it had most of its original parts except the speaker which was replaced with a PM type. I went through and replaced the bad capacitors, realigned the receiver, and it is playing fine now. I like the big red tuning knob against the black dial and it is lit so really looks sharp in low light. Great addition to your collection if you like more unusual radios.
