Nicely proportioned design. No repairs or refinishing. None needed. The tuning and volume dials work fine. The unit powers on and off with a definite click. No dial light. Not designed with one. All out of spec capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 70+ 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. The power cord and plug are good working condition. No exposed wiring. No pervasive hum. No pervasive static. Stations tune in clearly and distinctly. 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.
