Among the items on the block this week are a 1905 Standard X2 disc
phonograph (original throughout, working perfectly, and it still has a
beautiful coat of factory paint on its 18" blue flower horn); a 1924 Crosley 51 battery radio (near mint and working, and original
throughout); an 1899 Edison "Drip Pan" Gem phonograph (among the most
collectible of all Edison cylinder phonographs, the Drip Pan set is
unlike any other GEM made after it, and the example I'm offering is in
excellent condition and is complete with its original cone horn and
sheet metal drip pan); and last but by no means least a 1923 Kennedy V
battery regenerative battery radio (near mint, working condition, and
its original throughout -- you've got to at least take a look; it's
gorgeous). Sodon't forgetto click "see other items" after you've read about this one. You can also click this link toquickly add and then save me to your favorite seller listand

Judging from its build quality and component layout, it appears to be a factory-built set, and it's housed in a gorgeous walnut cabinet that retains a nearly flawless factory finish. Condition of the radio is excellent throughout, especially for such a large receiver. The chassis and the chassis components are pristine, with no rust or corrosion evident anywhere. Both variable condensers turn smoothly. The IF transformers are all stamped "Madison Moore," and they all test good (all windings are continuous). The Ameritran audio frequency transformers are the correct 1st and 2nd stage transformers. The 1st stage AF transformer (black) has continuous primary and secondary windings. The 2nd stage AF transformer (silver) has an open primary, so it will need to be bridged or bypassed if you wish to make the radio operational. Like most superhets, the radio requires a loop antenna, so bear that in mind if you wish to make this a working set. All 8 tubes are good. The wiring on the underside of the chassis check is beautiful: neat and pristine, with no evidence of repairs or resoldering. The deck itself is also in excellent condition, as are all the supporting struts. The cabinet is a work of art, built like a piece of furniture and still in amazing condition. There's a small hairline where the panel slots into the retaining channel along the right front side of the cabinet, but the radio still slides smoothly into the cabinet, and it sits snugly inside once it's inside. All of the cabinet's carved corner decorations are intact, with no damage anywhere.
The radio measures approx. 32" wide x 15" deep x 11" high. Shipping weight, properly packed, will be approximately 60 lb.
