Both are beautiful radios, and command a lot of attention even from non-radio people. This radio easily becomes the centerpiece of any room and guests at my home continuously migrate to this set. Only a hand full of these models is known to exist today.
It looks mint to me. The grill cloth is a bit worn, but looks original. Otherwise it's awesome and works great, green eye and all. There is a sticker on the back from the radio restorer, so it appears the radio was restored by Antique Radio Restore and Repair in Massachusetts.
