DESCRIPTION: Tabletop Tube AM radio manufactured by Sky Rover in the 1940's in excellent+ working condition. Pretty ivory repainted bakelite cabinet to mirror gloss. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Hairline crack on the left side has been repaired and repainted. Hairline crack on lower back corner is painted over and not visible from a distance. This radio is over 65 years old! No dial light. Was not designed with one. The original brown knobs are in excellent condition and are not painted. The volume on/off knob is secure. No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. The tuning dial works fine. The dial plastic is cracked in the middle but not all the way to the edges. Has been stabilized with some glue. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! This radio is a good player. Tunes in loudly to stations with no humming or buzzing. The tubes are working fine. All out-of-spec resistors have been replaced with modern correct value and voltage equivalents. The cardboard backing is original and in very good condition. There is no loud or pervasive hum. There is no loud or pervasive static between stations unless you operate near modern megahertz devices. The power cord and plug are in 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.
