This vintage radio is in the original factory molded brown Bakelite. Not repainted no touchup no overspray. All original knobs, dial pointer, etc are present, working, not missing and securely attached. Picks up AM stations clearly and loudly up and down the dial without external antenna attachment. This radio is over 65 years old! All the dial numbering and lettering is crisp and clear. No flaking which is common with Philco dial glass. Clear dial glass is original with no hazing or yellowing and no cracks. Philco manufacturer logo is 100% intact. The unit powers on and off with a definite click. The original bottom label is intact. All out of spec 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. The power cord is a brand new replacement with safety polarized plug in perfect working condition with no cracks, or splits or electrical tape repair.
