Great looking radio, fully restored. Not sure what these go for though.

For $7K, I'd expect better quality photos.

Those pictures look like pictures of poorly done paper prints of photos.
I hope the seller gets his asking price. That will make mine worth more. :roll:

Well, I've got a mint origional & electronically restored 12A58 "Baby Stratosphere" and I only expect around $2500 tops for it unless I'm seriously out of the loop as far as current prices are concerned. I think this seller is just a full blown dreamer. If that set ever gets sold, I can't believe it'll be for the asking price, no way, espicially for one that looks refinished even though the seller calls it "restored". The word "Refinished" seems to be a dirty word for many sellers.

If a scammer found those pictures online or in a book and copied them with a cellphone, they'd probably look a lot like those pics. :x

That seller has been selling high end radios, at least occasionally, for quite a few years now.
