Yep.
It looks like even the cabinet damage on top could be repaired acceptably well by those with little cabinet repair experience or courage.
I'm looking for my first (and only) console for my house. Must be a bargain similar to this.

That is the first series of "Admiral" branded radios by Continental Radio. Sold under many other names as well. Very well made, nice chassis. Has flywheel tuning like Zenith. 1936 or 1937.. Has tuning eye on left, band indicator on right.

I recently restored the eleven tube model with different cabinet. Very nice performer!

Nice radio, but the style reminds of a Dalek
