DESCRIPTION: Smart looking little player! One of the more instantly likeable designs from Arvin. What I would call a proportional design in terms of size and dimension with respect to function. Tabletop tube AM radio manufactured by Arvin in 1950 time frame in excellent+ working condition. Cabinet is original molded bakelite which has brown and light brown swirly. There is a crack along the left side. No other cracks, chips, or major scratches. No repaints, repairs. None needed. This radio is over 65 years old! No missing ink, smudges, or rub-off on dial lettering. No dents or dings on the front metal mesh grill. The tuning dial works fine. Dial light works and lights brightly. All paper and wax capacitors have been replaced with modern equivalents so this radio has another 50+ years or more of playing time! The knobs are original and securely attached. The volume on off knob turns on with a definite click. 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.
