I haven't heard of one existing Alan. I actually didn't know what I had bought until I contacted Don Patterson. Every time I think I have seen everything, I find something new.

I know there are still some great radios we haven't seen yet. In an effort to get this thread going again I will list a few more unusual sets.
Here are my Klitzen 525 pair. The red panel version was sold under the Paramount Radio Corp., Saint Louis name.

Here is a battery set I have had a few years. I have been looking for the source of it's manufacture to no avail. I am sure it was born in Pennsylvania. I got it from a collector who lives in that area anyway. As you can see it has some Simplex parts from the very early 1920's and a and a Ripley engraved on the panel. Anyone have a clue?

Has anyone heard of or have information on the Wm Galloway Co in Waterloo Iowa. This radio is for sale and I am interested in it
for historical sake as I live in Iowa but $400 is way too much I think. The listing has some info. I dont think too many of these are around?

I could use some help identifying this one tube radio. I believe it is factory because it has an engraved panel and it seems to use factory components. I thought it might be from Marshall-Gerkin as it has some MG parts and it is similer to a Marshall Gerkin amp that was on Ebay a couple years ago.
Any of you battery set collectors have any ideas?

Hey, Big Al - Have you looked at the Klitzen 525 circuit? How is regen controlled in that one?

Here we go again. I have more to put on here but I am still hoping we hear from more of you.
This is probably a one of kind pair made by Chisholm & Lambert of Boston, MA.
Possibly a pair of prototypes? The meters say Chisholm & Lambert and it has the name engraved on the tuner panel. The amp has no engraving on the panel. I have the covers for these.
The incorporation was by Henry G. Lambert, David Moulton and Harold V. Chisholm for $110,000 capitol in 1922. I have never seen any ads for these.

I think you have the market cornered in unique waterfowl.

Some strange stuff about that radio:

The meter is labelled "AMPERES" ... most sets of that vintage I have seen - if they have a meter - it's for filament voltage, not Amperes. Also, the range (looks like 1.4 A top end) looks rather high for plate or filament current ... unless maybe it was designed to use those REALLY early 1A filament tubes like C-300?

Also, what the heck are those terminals "LOAD" and "GRID LOAD" for? Maybe it's a transmitter, not a receiver? Or, maybe some sort of hookup for an external tickler or other regenerative device to get around a patent issue?

Jack labelled "EXTRA" ... extra WHAT?

My early Kennedy 110 (Ser 680) also uses an ammeter (0-1.5) for the filament measurement along with other differences.
The "extra" jack parallels the phone jack. I doubt if the company ever went into much production. They are an odd couple all right.

Pretty sure this one does qualify as "obscure" although it does appear (without photo) in the "Bunis" books.

The Resas is one of the best looking three dialers. I posted mine somewhere on this subject and Dale Davenport has one on here as well.

Great looking set, it will be interesting to see what it goes for.

It would scare me to death to think about trying to ship it.

Yep, it sure would be a shame to see it destroyed like so many have been by people who have not a clue how to pack such an item.

Here is a Halowat, an obscure set made in Portland Oregon in the 20s and I have never seen another like it.

Great!!! Looks a little bit like mine but can someone tells me how many types of early radio invented? Or how many types of superhet is there? Can it power up without using battery? or build a transformer to feed it?
thanks.
