I like the unique dial shape in the Stromberg-Carlson. Wonder if that was an export model?

It's a Stromberg-Carlson 225H. They're beautiful radios, but actually relatively common, showing up on eBay pretty often. One time I looked about a year ago, there were 3 that had sold in the previous 3 months. Right now I see only one:

I've often thought if I stumbled across one at a decent price, I'd grab it. Hasn't happened yet. The couple I've seen locally, the seller's were asking in the $300-400 range. They don't sell that high on eBay, so I'll just wait.

I found my 228H at a local antique store for $50. Here is a picture of a 228H (not mine) from The Radio Attic:

Close; went for $249, + $34 shipping.

Yeah, but IMHO that's a top-retail price for that radio. Most of the ones I've seen sell on the 'Bay in the last couple years were in the $125-225 range. Notice that was an auction with opening bid of $249, and got only 1 bid. That's essentially a BIN price, just low enough to find a taker. Now that that buyer has one, he's outta the market, and he was the only person willing to put up $249.

If you pick one up for $150 + S&H on the 'Bay, it's a lot less than one in a store around here asking $350 (plus $35 tax). Probably save $150 overall. That's a couple other radios. If you're willing to risk shipping one.

I think you're looking at the last photo on page 7.

It's a 1959 Reela Dauphin, to the best of my ability to tell.

That Grundig on the first page looks like the type that the top flips up and there is either a phono or tape recorder

The Saba is really sweet. I have one of those. They are MONSTROUSLY complicated, difficult to work on sets but when they work they sound pretty fantastic.
