Yes folks, believe it or not, here, before your very eyes, materializing out of the ether and onto your display, is one of the FEW extant specimens of this incredibly low production Philco model of the mid 1930s.
This radio is SO RARE that at the time of this posting not 1 picture of it can I find anywhere on the internet! - If you can, please inform me so that I can remove this part of the descriptive narrative.
Even the most detailed catalogs of Philco models only offer a mere drawing of THIS model.
This radio is SO RARE that TOTAL production numbers over FOUR consecutive series phono models including this one (610PF,630PF, 635PF, 640PF,) only reached 2200!
See the gorgeously gargantuan aesthetically amazing ornate tonearm!
Yes, here is an opportunity to restore this complete original to its former beauty and, if you so choose, to finally provide a visual example of this rarity to the world.
This is a six tube set with a cabinet built by Sherman Clay Co.
The veneer is in decent condition with only minimal delamination at edges.
Just scuffs to paint and a grill cloth in need of replacement.
More pictures available on request.
Difficult to put a value on this.
So, I'll put up an asking price open to offers.
No, it won't be going on Ebay as I prefer it go to someone here, or I keep it and restore it myself.
$400
Will entertain trades for vintage audio and recording equipment and tubes.
Paypal accepted and shipping available.
