DESCRIPTION: Tabletop tube AM clock alarm radio manufactured by Admiral in 1953 in excellent condition. Look at the Catalin like swirl! Looks very classy. Would look nice on a bookshelf or mantle. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without need of external antenna attachment. Cabinet is original factory dark green Catalin-like swirl. No chips, abrasions, major scratches or missing pieces. There are hairline cracks on front, sides, and top. Original factory molded color. No repaints no touch-ups no oversprays. The front bottom gold metal rail is a nice touch not tarnished. The front clock bezel is clear transparent with no cracks or hazing. The white clock face is in excellent condition. Knobs are green matching, original and securely attached. All the lettering is still clear and legible. Gold has not rubbed off the Admiral logo. This radio is over 60 years old! No dial light not designed with one. The tuning dial works fine. The power cable is 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.
