DESCRIPTION: Philco clock radio with push buttons that work! Reminds me of the push button transmission of the era. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Philco in 1959 in very good working condition. No chips, cracks, or major scratches. The cabinet is in very good condition. There are little chips and scratches throughout. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is original factory molded glossy white color with hunter green painted grill. This radio is over 60 years old! All the dial number is crisp and clear. The clock face is original. There are a few minor flea bites due to flaking but not terrible. Philco paper clock faces rarely hold up well over time. This one is fading at the bottom under the Philco name. No missing knobs. Knobs are original and securely fastened. The volume knob is missing center gold metal cap.The tuning dial works fine. The clock works and keep accurate time for a mechanical analog design. The push buttons are securely attached and don't pop off. Two of the pushbuttons are slightly more gold tone of metal than the other 3. The radio turns off after a long while but eventually turns off. The buttons take a little strength pressing to actually work. The push buttons return to same level position. The alarm works. The buzzer works. The clock and alarm set function work. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with high quality 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. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The backing board was pressed in and cracked but has been reinforced with double layer of fiber board. The power cord and plug are good original working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring. 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.
