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.



Chassis - Emerson DF item #1761
This is an Emerson DF chassis out of a portable/AC radio circa 1939. It fits several different models including DF302, DF306 and others. This version of the chassis uses a 117L6 combination rectifier/output. Everything looks original and the 6.5 inch speaker is in perfect condition. I cut the power cord because it was frayed but I wired in my variac and at 100 volts I got some hum from the chassis so I would start the restoration with the electrolytics. There was no evidence of any shorts. I will include a copy of the DF chassis schematic.

Old 1940's Radio Batteries item #1760
I have accumulated many old radio batteries. They came from portable AC/battery radios from the 1940's. Some were sold by the radio maker (Philco) and others by the battery maker (9 lives, Everready). Various voltages and shapes (A, B and C batteries). They are great for rebuilding with modern batteries or just for display. The batteries tend to be heavy but several can be combined into USPS flat rate shipping boxes to save on mailing costs. The smaller ones are $5 (front row), the larger $10 (back row). Quantity discounts.

GE A53 item #1759
Nice looking GE A53 tombstone radio from 1935. Wood cabinet solid and original finish in reasonable shape. A few touch ups and polishing will make it look very presentable. The chassis looked intact so I powered it up on my variac. At 100 volts I was surprised to hear the radio playing very well with just a little background hum (I am sure those electrolytics need changing). All dials work as they should. Very nice original grille cloth and knobs. Original rubber cord is still pliable with just a small piece of tape where it exits the chassis (I would shorten it a drop and that will eliminate the taped part). One of the better examples of this radio in as found condition. Take a look at this link to see what Radio Attic sold this exact model for in 2012: https://radioattic.com/item.htm?radio=0020920. Grab this one at a fraction of that price. Figure insured FedEx shipping to be about $25.

Guild Country Belle Telephone Radio item #1755
Sharp looking Country Belle Telephone radio by Guild, Model 556. Quality built solid wood cabinet is in good shape. With some more polishing it will look fine. Radio itself is in working condition. When you pick up the ear piece the radio turns on and replace it to turn off. All parts on the radio are original including wood knobs, cast iron earpiece and mouthpiece with brass trim, brass bells (need some polishing), and brass crank to tune stations. A great collectible and interesting conversation piece.

Crosley 11-118U item #1748
Fresh out of an estate comes this 1951 Crosley Model 11-118U "Serenader" radio. It is in excellent condition throughout with just 3 small scratches on top that could be touched up (look at first picture closely and you can just make them out). The case does not have any cracks or chips. I powered the radio up and it plays fine. I was curious so I took out the chassis and it is clean and all original. Knobs, back, and label on bottom complete this beauty. Priced at 1/2 of other websites.

Philo 37-610 Big Bullet item #1747
This is one of my favorite art deco radios. It is a 1937 Philco Model 37-610 aka "Big Bullet". The wood cabinet is in good condition for being 80 years old, but there are a few repairs needed. There is a small missing piece of veneer on the front as seen in the first picture. The lacquer finish on top is worn and will need some refinishing. The veneer along the front top edge needs gluing down, and there is a small crack in the veneer just before it starts the rounded portion of the cabinet (it can also be glued down and when sanded smooth should not be a problem). As you can see in the first picture the grill cloth is torn and the original Philco field coil speaker had some tears in this area. I was able to use rubber cement from the inside of the speaker and make the repairs and it is now fine. On the bottom of the cabinet is a factory cut out so you can see the underneath of the chassis. I noticed one electrolytic was disconnected so I removed the chassis and found all 3 were disconnected. I decided to replace them and to my amazement the radio played fine and sounded great. If this was my radio I would still replace the rest of the old capacitors, but this takes the big gamble out of buying an old tube radio and not knowing if it works. While I had the chassis out I noticed the plastic dial had 2 cracks and I was able to epoxy them tight. I think it looks fine but if this bothers you repro dials for this radio are available. Finally, the original knobs and escutcheon are good. I had one of these radios in my collection and sold it for $350. I had wanted to get another but do not have the time for any more projects so instead I am offering it for sale for $100 (I recently looked on ebay and cabinets alone for this radio go for $100). Please expect Fedex shipping to be around $35 East and $45 West of the Mississippi as this is a large radio and needs a big box with lots of packing. I am betting this radio will go quickly.
