Hi all,

A friend of mine has this radio and asked me about value. I am generally not in transistor radios so thought I would ask here. thanks in advance for having a look.

We haven't tried applying power to this unit so I do not know if it is in working condition. Please give me some idea of what this is worth in working / non-working condition. Thank you.

Jeff

A similar Sony transistor radio, model TR-7120, in working condition, sold on eBay for about $40:

Thanks for the reply. I was figuring it was not super valuable in current condition. My friend has a buyer at $10 and I think that is probably all right considering current status.

I might double that offer, + postage, if there are no cracks, or chips out. Can you post a few more scans?

Hiya Fifties - I can get some more photos the next time I am at his shop as long as he hasn't already disposed of it. Stay tuned...

If Trans-Atlantic shipping wasn't such a bummer nowadays, I'd easily pay forty dollars+ (no chips or cracks) as it's missing from my SONY collection. Lol

Hi everyone.

I finally got tired of seeing this radio on my CL feed and messaged my friend an offer of $2 dollars. I was kidding of course. My friend has a key to my shop and surprise surprise the little radio was there when I arrived Monday morning along with a note "I want my $2". Cannot decide if I want to restore or move it.

Cheers.
