DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by RCA Victor in 1957 excellent+ working and cosmetic condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in near mint condition. There is a small chip on the front right side of the grill, but other than that the cabinet is pristine front, back, top, sides, and bottom. There are no cracks or major scratches. Factory molded colors. No repaints, oversprays, or touch-ups. This radio is over 50 years old! Dial light works and illuminates the logo behind Filtermatic. This is a dual speaker system. All the dial numbers are crisp and clear. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. Original knobs are gold color and securely attached. The metal inserts on both knobs are still present and in amazing condition. These metal inserts normally pop off and get misplaced over the years. There are usually little dimples and divots at the peak of the cones but not on these. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. The power cable is in good condition and securely attached. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment no pets. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
