HERE IS A VERY DECENT 1936 ZENITH 5S29 TOMBSTONE RADIO... THE RADIO IS VERY NICE LOOKING, AND THE CABINET WAS RE-DONE WITH A SPRAY LACQUER FINISH. HOWEVER, THERE ARE VENNER CHIPS AND A LITTLE WAVINESS IN THE TOP THAT A PERFECTIONIST WOULD WANT TO CORRECT. THE GOOD NEWS IS THAT LACQUER IS EASILY REMOVED FOR THAT REPAIR... BUT I THINK THE SET LOOKS QUITE NICE AS IS, AND YOU MAY FEEL THE SAME WAY...
I DO NOT EXPECT IT TO SELL AS A PERFECT ONE WOULD, BUT THE PICTURES SHOW THIS TO BE QUITE NICE. THE LAST PHOTOS WERE TAKEN INDOORS WITH A FLASH, FOR CONTRAST. THE CHASSIS IS VERY CLEAN.
SOMEONE HAS AN ELECTROLYTIC CAPACITOR ATTACHED TO THE SIDE OF THE INTERIOR. PERHAPS IT WAS EASIER TO DO. THIS RADIO HAS ALL ORIGINAL WOOD KNOBS, IN GREAT SHAPE.THE DIAL IS NICE TOO. IT APPEARS TO HAVE ORIGINAL CAPS, SO I HAVE NOT PLUGGED IT IN. THE GRILL CLOTH WAS REPLACED WITH A NOS SALESMAN SAMPLE RADIO GRILL CLOTH, NOT ZENITH THOUGH, AND LOOKS QUITE GOOD IN THE SET. I WILL BUBBLE WRAP THIS RADIO CAREFULLY, AND PACK IT VERY WELL. I HAVE HAD NO COMPLAINTS ON MY PACKING JOBS.
