That is a 12-H-695 or 696

One is Walnut the other is Mahogany, this one probably is the 695 Walnut, from what I can tell.

Nice prewar FM model with a shutterdial!

I know side by sides get little love but this is well worth $75.

you are correct, brain fart on my end....

that stained grille cloth is a perfect candidate for my "gold dust" technique with spray paint. Lay it out and spray at 45 degree angles LIGHTLY... the trick is to not overdo to to get spatters so use a fresh can and select a darker gold color. The stains magically hide away.

$75.00 to who, I wouldn't pay $35.00 for the components. :)

I would be getting it if I didn't already have one. I don't need two.

If it were the 12-H-678 or 12-H-679 (which uses the same cabinet) I would have bought it already.

I could use a speaker and changer, but I would rather not buy this one only to part it out.

Push-pull output transformer and speaker... thats a $50 item right there. Power transformer, $35-45 for good used ones today, all the tubes including maybe a pair of Zenith branded 6V6G and a 5Y4G rectifier... all good stuff. BUT, I would not part this gem out myself unless it was more trashed than this. Also, the ones that have the lift up lids have a real nice gold Zentih logo decal thats worth cutting the lid board and framing. Really cool looking, and often overlooked and usually in excellent condition.
