Downsizing Collection

After many 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. Please do not ask me what I want for it, it is up to you to make an offer. Shipping will be added to the total unless your offer is to good to be true, and in that case shipping is negotiable. 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.

Simpson 312 VTVM item #1668

$15.00      condition: fair

Zenith G503 "Universal" (1950) item #1663
One of the early Zenith radios that preceeded the Transoceanics. The case needs cleaning and polishing (any scuff marks will disappear with black shoe polish). The radio powered up with a loud hum but I was able to tune in a station so change those electrolytics and you will be back in business. When you open the front the tuning dial pops up and that turns the radio on, and off when you lower the tuning dial (radio shown in raised "on" position). The plastic dial cover has some small stress marks where it contacts the knobs when it is closed. That was a design flaw in these radios so be careful when you close the tuning dial cover. Everything looks original and intact. Very collectible radio.

Collectible Radio Book Collection item #1662
Here is a rare opportunity to get 5 of the most sought after and long out of print radio books at one incredible price. Look these up on Amazon and you will see they sell together for $300+ and probably not even in this condition. The 5 hard copy books are in excellent condition with their dust jackets. The incredibly stunning photography will blow you away and wait until you see the radios. Sold as a collection only. Shipping by USPS Media Mail included in price (sorry lower US 48 only)

$100.00      condition: excellent

Emerson 915 item #1661
Nice small Emerson Model 915. White case in good condition with just 2 small areas with some surface wear on the top rear and a tight hairline on one side. Radio has new electrolytics and plays fine. Original knobs, back, and label on bottom.

$25.00      condition: good

Sylvania 433 item #1660
This is a real find. It is a Sylvania Model 433. I have never had one before. The case is red plastic and has lots of surface wear and scratches on the back, but in better condition on the top (just some tape residue) and front grille looks good. No cracks or chips. Plastic carrying handle folded down for pictures but also in good shape. The base to this radio is metal and there are two lock keys on either side that you turn and the base separates from the radio. I powered this baby up and it works, but I would suggest going through the chassis to at least clean and spray the controls and check that everything else looks ok. Everything to the radio looks original. The brass escutcheons surrounding the knobs need cleaning and polishing.

Motorola 5J1U item #1659
Small and cute Motorola Model 5J1U. Black plastic case has lots of scratches and surface marks, a small crack and chip off the back bottom right side, and a small crack on the back cover. When you open the back there are two black pieces that hold the cover to the radio and one is broken off (cover still stays shut). It is in better condition once you open the front cover (pretty sharp looking color contrast). The green plastic grille and knobs are not damaged. I powered it up and the radio is working! The leather handle is intact and the two brass handle hinges need polishing. The Motorola emblem on the front is missing some of the gold paint on the left side. All said this is still a very collectible radio, and with some expert restoration will be a sharp addition to your collection.

$45.00      condition: fair

Chassis - Emerson 652B item #1655
Chassis for an Emerson Model 652 Series B. Looks all original and fairly clean. It works but needs new electrolytics.

$20.00      condition: fair

RCA 3-X-521 item #1654
RCA Model 3-X-521 from 1953. The brown case has no damage and has a nice mottled look to the bakelite. I replaced the electrolytics and it is playing fine. Original knobs, back and label on bottom. This is a nice basic RCA radio without the bells and whistles of more expensive elaborate radios.

$40.00      condition: excellent

Zenith Z519V Clock Radio item #1653
Pretty in pink Zenith Model Z519 clock radio. Case has one small hairline on side but tight, one on top but hardly noticeable, and a few others on bottom mainly due to stress. They do not show and overall the case is still in very good condition. It polished up nicely. The radio and clock are both working. Everything looks original to the radio including the radio and clock knobs, the plastic dial and clock covers (clock and dial face in great condition), back, and label on bottom. The screw holes where the back fastens to the cabinet have some chips.

$40.00      condition: good

GE 431 Musaphonic item #1651
Very nicely styled GE Musaphonic Model 431. Case has two issues - small damage to side and a very small heat damaged spot to ivory grill on top right. Also, crack on plastic dial cover. Radio works and has a phono input on back (for your IPOD etc). Give away price at $25.
