It has as perfect a bakelite cabinet as I have ever seen. No nicks scratches or chips.Any flaws you might see in the pictures are a result of the flash. It has been electrically refurbished. Lots of "lollypop" capacitors, new filter capacitors and a new volume control and switch.
There are several models of the 825 series. This is the best one in that it has the capability for a rear speaker. The FM function couples inductively to the line cord, making the cord also an antenna.There are also terminals on the back for hooking up an external FM antenna if you wish. Original line cord and plug are still excellent and were not needed to be replaced.
Cosmetically, brass shows signs of wear but the dial numbers are all very legible. The radio will weigh 14 pounds packed.
