As with any radio 65 year old there are going to be some blemishes and imperfections on the top, sides, back, bottom, and front but nothing that detracts from the overall look of the radio. The small holes on the lower left side are clean and smooth and will not effect the structural rigidity of the case nor the performance and are not too easy to see given their location.
A small price to pay for having such a rare Zenith in your collection. Beautiful functional piece of art perfect for any collector who loves rare Zenith models made in the 1950s.
Dimensions are 12 in length X 9 high X. I use plenty of Bubble Wrap, extra padding and double box or use extra box support material. It will be marked Fragile & This side up on the box to make sure it is handled carefully. The radio is fully insured. A small sampling of my feedback.Best packaging ever for a vintage radio - I really appreciate it. Fantastic radio as advertised, careful and thoughtful packaging. If there are any problems, please contact me and we can review options.
