DESCRIPTION: Rare and beautiful twin speaker original green Truetone. Tabletop tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by Truetone in late 50's in excellent+ working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. This radio is in excellent working condition. Beautiful design with instantly retro 50's dials. No cracks, chips on front, top or sides. No missing material anywhere on the cabinet which is hard to find given the sharp corners of this design. Chip on back but only on the stand, no one will see it unless they pick it up and turn it over. Amazing for a radio over 60 years old! No repairs or repaints performed or needed. Cabinet is glossy green and ivory color. The front gold trim is in excellent near mint condition. Excellent original condition cabinet with no splits, or seams, or missing pieces. Knobs are original and securely attached. No missing factory labels or stickers. No dial light. Not originally designed with one. All the dial number is crisp and clear which is rare considering the lettering is printed on gold foil card stock. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine. 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. 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.
