DESCRIPTION: Here's a truly rare bird. Tabletop Tube AM radio manufactured by Tele-Tone in late fifties in excellent working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is original mint seafoam green plastic. Bottom has a repaired crack. Not repainted. Very cool and rare color combination. This radio is over 50 years old! No dial light. Not designed with one. There are no cracks on the top which is a miracle on this flat section of plastic with no support contours. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The gold logo is legible. The kitschy-est of kitsch! The tuning dial works fine. Matching seafoam tuning dial. How cool is that! Replacement power cable is securely attached no breaks, splits, or exposed wiring. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The backing board has seen better days. Broken in two. It has been strengthened and repaired. 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 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!
