And the 81 is a nice tombstone. This pic is also from a current listing.
Dial and chassis are not the same. I just wanted to pile on with more Marconi eye candy. 8)

Won't hurt to see if the seller would pack and ship it though, sending the least expensive way, which I assume would be by sea.

Looks like it is 'She', and has not replied to anyone in a month. Keep trying.
You will not find any Canadian Marconis in Europe, so shipping is the only way, short of buying it a seat on the plane.
Contact an antique radio club in the Toronto area, and recruit one of those old guys to pick up and ship. Just a thought.
