This will play as long as you hold on to the antenna wire in the back and the tuning button. This came from a Estate Sale and was being work on so the 1 antenna wire is not hook up I would say that is the trouble and this is missing the 6 push buttons on the side and the 2 knobs.
The case is in good shape as for as I can tell. All of the buttons seem to work OK. Both Antenna's looks to be in good shape. It is old and used so does have some ware. What you see in the pictures is what you are getting so look good.This is a nice piece of History and after being Restored would make a wonderful addition to your Old Antique Radio Collection.
