DESCRIPTION: Rare find from a rare manufacturer in a eye-popping color! I have never seen one of these in any condition much less in near mint condition! AM/FM makes it functional for listening too! This shade of aquamarine is the most rich and vibrant I've come across! Manufactured by Olympic located in Long Island City at the time. AM/FM tabletop tube radio manufactured by Olympic Radio and Television, a division of Siegler Corporation, in the late-fifties early sixties timeframe still in excellent+ working condition. This radio has a very good audio sound quality. Very loud and clear no humming or buzzing. No cracks, splits, abrasions, or missing material anywhere on the cabinet! There is a slight bow on the top back edge due to the backing board slight protrusion. Very slight. No cracks, chips, or major scratches any where on the cabinet. All original molded factory plastic color no repaints or repairs. All knobs, dial pointer, etc are present, working, not missing. No missing center gold metal caps! Picks up AM and FM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without external antenna attachment. Excellent mid century design! Original aquamarine is mirror-like glossy condition. The knobs are original matching clear plastic securely attached. This radio is over 50 years old! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear. No missing numbering, dots or dashes, or anything. No smudges or yellowing. The back panel is in excellent condition. The tuning and volume dials work fine. The unit powers on and off with a definite click. All out of spec 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. The original power cord and plug is in good working condition with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair. 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.
