If the Georgian is breathtaking, than this model is off the hook Amazing. I bought it from a collector after searching for 15 years. This is the only one I found and I paid handsomely for it. That was the most expensive one with a 15 tube chassis in 1938, although not that much more than the Georgian 15U272. 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.Broadcast Receiver - or past WW2 Tuner. Superhet with RF-stage; ZF/IF 456 kHz.
