DESCRIPTION: Very rare to find this RCA model in this color. Tabletop vacuum tube AM radio manufactured by RCA Victor in 1956. Radio is in excellent working condition. Cabinet is all original factory molded yellow color. Not repainted no touch up no over spray. The front grill is in excellent condition. Large noticeable crack on the top. Crack has been reinforced with internal non-visible acrylic attached reinforcement panel. No repaints. Knobs are original and securely attached. The large tuning dial has a blue center cap not missing. There are a few small dents and chips on the edges of the cabinet. This radio is one of the better ones for listening purposes. This radio is over 60 years old! Some missing ink, no smudges, or no rub-off on logo lettering. The tuning dial works fine. Mounting shaft is not broken and reglued. The new replacement power cable and safety polarized plug is securely attached no cracks, or splits. Little Nipper logo is original not missing. These tend to pop off over the years. Nice to see this one is still intact. 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. The set has been aligned according to factory specifications. No exposed wiring. Factory original backing board is intact securely fastened. Bottom factory labels are intact and legible. 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.
