Downsizing Collection

In addition to radios listed on my For Sale pages, radios in my collection are also available for sale. However, they will be sold by offer only. Due to the rarity of certain radios, restrictions apply.



AtwaterKent 48 item #1766
I am selling another radio from the collection of Edward Duda, Chief Design Engineer for Lafayette Electronics. He had a huge shop in his basement and made many custom radios and amplifiers. I was lucky to attend the auction of his estate and bought some nice stuff. The AK 48 I am offering here was completely rebuilt and restored by him. He added a solid state power supply that he fit into the case alongside the original chassis (this was originally a battery set). The insides of the radio are immaculate, The radio works. There are 5 matching Hytron VT 67's (they are similar to a 30 tube) and a 31 output tube. The 2 front controls on the right (rheostats) are a bit sensitive to set because you are adjusting the RF and detector tube circuits. Also, he added a small pot that provides a fine control of the filament voltages inside the cabinet. The wood case is in great condition with the brass AK emblem on the outside and the serial number plate on the inside. The front is also beautiful. This radio has a great deal of provenance to anyone who collects vintage radios, or has memories of Lafayette Electronics. If you do a Google search of Edward Duda/Lafayette Electonics you can find pictures of his shop and some of his collection in the basement.

Unknown TRF Radio item #1763
Kinda neat looking TRF radio from about 1937. The wood case is in excellent condition with just one surface mark on the top front (the slits on the bottom left and right are part of the cabinet design). The chassis is unmarked but when I took it out of the cabinet and checked the tubes I found one that said Coronado. It is a 5 tube (25Z5, 43, 6C6, 6C6 + ballast) AC/DC set. As long as I had it out I replaced all the paper and electrolytic caps and it is playing with good sensitivity and selectivity (surprising for a TRF set). Can't say what is original and what is not but it still looks and sounds nice. On the back of the chassis is a switch that controls the pilot lamp (very unusual). ON HOLD

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.

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.

Philco 42-PT94 item #1737
Philco Model 42-PT94 Transitone from 1942. Wood case is solid with no veneer problems but needs refinishing. Unfortunately the escutcheon, which is made of Tenite, has a notoriously bad reputation. This type of plastic shrinks and warps over time. In my opinion the one on this radio is still acceptable looking. Better news on the chassis - it was rebuilt and is playing just fine with very nice sound and plenty of sensitivity. Everything else looks original to the radio including the knobs, handle, back, and full labels on bottom. Restore the cabinet and you will have a very nice radio.
