Does it look something like this? http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/rca_t6_1_1.html
If so, all the information is there, as far as value, here's a recent listing that ended on eBay, http://www.ebay.com/itm/1936-RCA-Victor ... 603wt_1099
But of course take into consideration shipping is expensive, so tack on that charge to the final price.
I'm new here, but one thing I can guarantee you, don't plug the radio in anymore
, even if it "works" because it may not work for long. A radio with original parts becomes a fire and safety hazard. You could also fry some irreplaceable parts. It'll need new filter capacitors at the very least. Also I never know when it's safe or not, but just be careful about touching the metal chassis (box inside containing the guts). It could be electrified, better safe than sorry, although, like I mentioned, please don't plug it in again until it has been checked out.
Anyway, wait for the more experienced guys to chime in, they know everything you'll ever need to know and then some. Restoring them isn't TOO difficult, you can do anything with time and patience. It's a rewarding hobby.
Good luck and welcome to the forum!
