No other cracks, chips, or major scratches. This radio is over 60 years old! All the dial numbers are crisp and clear. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. Original tuning knob is worn and plastic has yellowed over time. The black clock background of the dial is in very good condition. Clock face is clear and lettering and numbers are in great shape. The bottom on the clock face has a crack. The clear volume knob is original. Both gold metal insert are present, intact and shiny. Usually these go missing. The RCA logo is nice with shiny gold accent slightly rubbed off. The original power cable is in very good condition and securely attached no breaks at interconnect base. No exposed wiring. 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.
