Exterior has a few minor blemishes but is overall great condition. Tubes test good, electrolytic capacitors have been replaced as well as the power cord. Great looking wood knobs original to this set. It looks good and plays too. This is a great collectable from the Golden Age of Radio from one of the most famous manufacturers.It will look great where ever you put it. The cabinet is marked 5-F-233, but the chassis is marked 5-S-250. I have found that this chassis could have been in several different cabinets, including the one that it is in. This cabinet was also used for a battery operated radio. My guess is that someone at the factory grabbed this cabinet from a pile marked for a different radio. However, this cabinet is correct for this chassis. The markings are very faint, but present.
I only point this out to avoid confusion. This chassis is correct for this cabinet. This could be a GREAT Christmas gift. Please check my other items.
