DESCRIPTION: I have a soft spot for this Silvertone series. It embodies the last of fifties exuberance and its styling bombast. Sears really tried hard to make this the clock radio to top all others but ended up with a coup de grace. What was to follow was a long stylistic hangover of all brushed aluminum and wood grain plastic that seemingly continues to this day. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Sears Silvertone in the early 1960s in excellent working condition. Cabinet is an original molded brown marbly plastic and clear transparent clock bezel. No chips or major scratches. There is a stress fracture across the top cneter section that is less than the width of a human hair. Very mid-century early sixties looking with its wide low sleek looks and oblique angular grill. Volume knob is original and securely attached. This radio is over 50 years old! Dial light is new replacement and lights up brightly. The tuning dial works fine no slipping. The power cable is securely attached. The original cord was stronger and better quality than most. The power cord is in good working condition. 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 a wall of stickers on the bottom that are all intact and in good condition. 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. No exposed wiring. Clock works and keeps accurate time. Clock motor is silent. Alarm works. Wake to radio works. Sleep works. Alarm and clock set knob in back works. Calendar and day setting does not work. The radio has been thoroughly cleaned and inspected. Backing board is intact with crisp square edges. All wiring has been thoroughly checked for possible bridging and weak solder connection. Comes from non-smoking, mature, clean professional environment with no pets.
