DESCRIPTION: This is one of Philco more desirable designs. Looks good from every angle. This radio was lovingly cared for throughout its life. This was seller's friend's mother radio who lived in Manhattan. The owner took great care of this radio because there was no dust of lint pile-up inside! This radio was not used in the kitchen either because there was no evidence of oil or grease lint caking on the circuit board. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Philco in 1959 time frame in excellent+ condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is in near mint condition. No cracks, chips, or major scratches which is uncommon in this model. This radio is original factory molded pink color plastic. It is not repainted. It is not a faded ivory. The metal applique is securely attached with no waves. This radio is over 55 years old! The knobs are in very good condition with no cracks. The metal inserts are slightly tarnished. The tuning knob works fine and smooth no slipping. The tuning station numbers are slightly rubbed off. 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.
