Here's the Radio Shop tag on my Meteor.

And my Meteor with the Amplion Jr Delux horn.

Ron,
Where is the tag on your Meteor located? For some reason I don't recall seeing a tag on mine. I'll have to look this evening.
I like the Amplion speaker you teamed with your Meteor. It's a nice, smaller size that seems to fit it.

Look at the photo of the set, the tag is on the top edge of the front panel
right above the center tube.

Yeah I like the little Amplion with it too, a big
horn just wouldn't look right at all.

I am new to this forum.

Just picked up a set very similar to the Victor.
I am presuming it is home made since it has no manufacturer's label.

Rauland transformers and Shamrock coils.
Any interest in photos?

Ive got an Early Crosley Type V. Not by any means obscure but definatly worth a mention. Its a one tube regenerative set that has a Book style tuning cap.

I got mine is PRISTINE unrestored shape. Beautiful radio.

Will try to get a pic out soon.

I know of only two of these in collections. This is a Giblin Radioear
from Pawtucket, RI. The picture wouldn't behave so I doctored it a bit to minimize reflections but you get the idea. It uses a Timmons Talker assembly for the speaker. I bought it with a smal Radioear loop. Wait until we get to the "Loop" thread - I'll show it to you. Actually I forgot to put it with the set.

Nice "New England" built set Merrill.

Hopefully this weekend I will take possession of one of the most obscure sets around.

I am waiting on photos, and may have some questions that require your expertise..

Sure - - lets see em, there is always a chance its a "factory" set - - a surprisingly large number of such sets either weren't marked well or the markings have disappeared through the years.

Besides we always like to see other folks radios.

Here is one of my favorites though somewhat plain faced. This is sort of a rare bird AC Dayton R-12 which in my opinion is a real pretty set. I know of only one other and that is in poor condition. This one dates from early 1924 - another nice catch at Rochester of bygone days. I'm glad I got it when I did even I though I hemmed and hawed at the time thinking they weren't hard to find and had to be talked into it.

Here is an ad for this set from March 1924 Popular Radio Magazine:

Has anyone ever seen this set? The photo is on ebay now.

Image

This listing says the tags on the radio say it was made by the
Radio Laboratory & Manufacturing Company located at 215 Court Street, Los Angeles.

Nice WE horn, don't recognize the loop. Set is probably a Super-het.
If that's a power supply it's sitting on is sure seems to be over kill.

Here is a Pathe, as found, that I picked up this weekend.

Image

I don't know how obscure it is but there does not appear to be much information available on it.

Might have a couple of "glass bottle", lead/acid "B" batteries plus a lead/acid "A" battery in there?.
Thanks for posting.

I don't know about the nameplate, I do not have a Pathe speaker to compare it to.

Here is another old one in as found condition. A Northern Electric R4 with peanut tubes.

I stole this at a local public auction. I was the only bidder.

Merrill, do you think that set was pre "Day-fan"? The information on the tag, seems to imply that.

Ed, I think Grid Leak is right, similar nameplate as on the early Pathe cone speakers.

It ended, sold for $57, http://cgi.ebay.com/1920s-8x10-Product- ... 45ef39ae77

I found it using one of my saved searches
Radio Photos", I check this periodically looking
for new additions to my Radio Girls collection.
