Zenith 6D311 Bakelite Table Top Set, 1939, Very Clean Classic. One of the must have set for anyone collecting pre WWII bakelite sets. One of a kind classic design with asymmetric cabinet, deep louvers that wrap around the cabinet, brass escutcheon, half moon dial. Five tube with heavy steel chassis, thick bakelite and transformer brings the weight to 6 pounds.
Most examples have cracked cabinets. This cabinet has no cracks - including the chassis screw mount holes.
The knobs require a very gentle hand to pry off. Someone did want to finesse the knob and his screwdriver chipped of the knobs (not me). AC cord replaced with new production replica cord. The ballast tube is NOS L49B.
Circuit is all original parts, Transformer comes up to correct voltage. There is sound but no frequency reception. A few modern replacement capacitors and resistors will need to be replaced for better than original performance.
Dial string is fine - pointer works fine. Excellent opportunity to own a classic with no cosmetic damage issues.I have tried to describe the set to the best of my ability. The new owner will be responsible for any all parts replacement. IMPORTANT - Be sure to read the Terms and Conditions of Sale.
