Downsizing Collection

After years and years of collecting radios I have finally run out of room, and that dreaded word "downsizing" has reared its ugly head. Not all my hundreds of prized possessions are for sale, but if you see something you must have please email for a complete description. Then you can decide what you want to pay for it. I will accept offers only. There are not going to be any lists, and nothing will be priced ahead of time. Shipping will be added to the selling price. Just click on the rectangular button called Collection and make up your wish list. Please remember that my usual For Sale list with descriptions and prices is still functional. Thanks for helping me make my wife happy.

Spear-Tone Record Player item #1421
This is a Spear-tone Model 39 (?) record player. It plays 16, 331/3, 45 and 78 rpm records and has a built-in 45 adapter. It is a single tube amplifier using a 50L6. I repaired the amp and also replaced the cartridge. Sounds pretty good especially on 45's with the cover closed (better fidelity). The front grille cloth is a little torn, the case needs a little cleaning, and you have to jiggle the speed control to set it but other then that it is in good condition. Spear-tone was acquired by the Lionel Train Company in the late 50's and they kept making these recrod players but added their logo to the Spear-Tone name. This is an earlier unit before they acquired the company.
