DESCRIPTION: Grandma took care of her little clock radio. It's nice to see such a clean example. The inside was as clean as the outside with just minor dust accumulation that has since been clean thoroughly. No scratches anywhere. It's hard to believe someone would store this clock radio for what could be decades without signs of extended storage, damage, dust accumulation, cord rash (when the cord is wrapped around the cabinet over a long time the plastic reacts creating a melted welt). It's as if this radio was stored in a box and sealed for a long time. Tabletop Tube AM clock radio alarm manufactured by General Electric in 1959 time frame in excellent+ physical and working condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Original factory molded pink plastic. Not repainted. No touch ups or over sprays. None needed. No cracks, chips, major scratches, repairs, or repaints. None needed. This radio is over 55 years old!  The knobs are in excellent condition. The clear dial face is clear no cracks. No dial light. Not designed with one. The clock bezel is clear and transparent not yellowing. No rub off or smudges or oxidation on the clock face. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The clock works and keep accurate time for a mechanical analog design. The clock motor is silent. No grinding, buzzing, or humming. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. 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.
