DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Admiral in 1959 in excellent+ condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in excellent condition. No cracks, chips, or major scratches. This radio is original factory molded coral pink plastic. It is not repainted. The black tuning dial is clear no rub off numbers. The knobs are nice aged golden color in excellent condition with no cracks. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. This radio has a hilarious original factory sticker on the side that says, "Made in America by American craftsman with American quality components." I don't think they meant South America or Mexico. There is a ring of proud stars encircling an eagle in mid flight. I would not challenge the nationalism of this brand. 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 unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The power cord and plug is good original working condition but yellowed from age. No exposed wiring or fatigue by the interconnect that is common. 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. If you let this one get away, it will be a long time before you'll see another one like it!
