There is a hairline curly-cue crack on the middle front of the left face. Original factory molded color. No repaints. No repairs. None needed. This radio is over 50 years old! No missing labels. The knobs are in excellent condition. No missing clock knobs. Amazing. The clear dial face has no cracks on face but a small one on the middle left side, not too visible from the front! Please see the photo close-up. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on clock dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping.
