Wonderful glossy condition. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. This radio is over 70 years old! The tuning dial works fine no slipping. The tuning and volume knobs are original and securely attached. Volume on/off switch works as designed. Tone knob switches from low to high tone and works as designed. Dial light works and lights up brightly. The clear tuning dial window is original no cracks slightly yellowed with age. Backing board is original and mounted on all four corners with original t-pins. Bottom factory label is in poor condition, nearly all flaked off.

The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. The brand new replacement power cord and polarized plug are excellent working condition with no cracks, or splits. No exposed wiring.
