DESCRIPTION: Tabletop Tube AM radio manufactured by Emerson in late 1950's in excellent+ working condition. Picks up FM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. These early vacuum tube FM radios are rare. Since a lot of people enjoy FM stations, these are highly sought after. This is an old radio that you can actually use! Cabinet is in fair condition in vanilla white plastic. The top has a crack across the top. There are two cigarette burns on the top as well. This radio is over 50 years old! Tuning to FM stations is displayed through a small window in front with station numbers displayed on a rotating internal cylinder. Neat design. All the dial numbers are crisp and clear. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. Original tuning knobs are transparent clear plastic with gold metal inserts. The gold metal insert is missing from the center of the volume knob. The tuning dial works fine and smooth no slipping. The volume knob is original and nice. The power cable is in good condition and securely attached. 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. 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. When this radio was new, tailfins were all the rage! This thing belongs in a museum!
