Hi All,
I was hoping someone could help me identify a model name or number on a radio. I have a baby ruby so I'm familiar with the tagging on the back of the radio. RCA, Westinghouse, Hazeltine. I was wondering if anyone could direct me to a site that might show different models made under these tags Thanks, Kurt

Radiomuseum will be your best bet to search all sets made by Climax. In this case, Radiomuseum does not have the proper info on the Baby Ruby, but they do have a photo of it:

Oh yes! Collectors go wild after those teardrop sets. In good complete condition you have a set that will easily bring in the four-figures.

Here is mine

Was refinished by previous owner and I should redo but too many projects.

Dial is different than RM.

Different how?

It looks like yours probably has the right knobs on it. At least, the pointer knob on RMorg is clearly wrong.

Will be for sale or auction? Or is it in the wrong forum?

This is the radio I asked about when I started this tread. It has a similar dial face as my Baby Ruby. Has anyone seen this model before to help me identify it. Kurt
