Hello.

What is the difference between a Zenith 6S152 radio and a Zenith 6S152W radio?

On the Radiomuseum website it shows that a 6S152 is from year 1936, and the 6S152W is from 1937.

The cabinet looks the same.

Thanks,
Walter

That website is sometimes incorrect on assigning years as well as other details.

Zenith 400 series are 1940, 300 are 1939, 200 are 1938, and 100 are 1937.

The "W" suffix in the model number indicates that the cabinet was painted white when it left the factory.

The model year for Zenith and most radio retailers worked something like cars. 1937 model year radios would probably be available in August/September of '36. Thus a 6S-152 could be considered both years, although technically the model year is 1937. The car in your driveway or garage could be 5 months older than its model year.
