The mahogany red case has no chips or odors but did have two cracks across the top. Those cracks have been repaired with a large metal plate epoxied to the top and the.
Top handle attached through the plate for strength. The case is now solid and strong. I have thoroughly washed and buffed the case and it looks remarkable for a 65 year old.
The knobs match and are original. The original hardboard back with attached cord is still in good condition and the original label on the bottom shows the correct location of each tube. The inside chassis has been thoroughly cleaned; the volume control de-oxidized for smooth volume changes and all moving controls lubricated.I have replaced all old paper and electrolytic capacitors in the chassis with new modern capacitors and I have checked all resistors. All 5 easily found tubes have been tested and questionable tubes have been replaced. The extra-large speaker is in great condition. The radio has been successfully bench tested for at least 12 hours over several days. The radio size is approximately 7¼ high by 10¼ wide by 6 deep and weighs 4½ pounds.
