Hi Folks,

I have completed the prices of the Thursday and Friday offerings... I have put a PDF at

http://oldradios.com/ARFpics/auctionPrices.pdf

Since the file has been updated, be sure to reload it in your browser so that you have the latest version (30+ pages)

I have Steve's information in Blue, and Dan's is in black..
I have included the addendum pages at the end as pictures of Dan's data.
Other than the Scott prices provided by member tasar earlier, I do not have any Saturday data.
I got a bit lazy and did not keep the first column up. If there was a discrepancy, I put both prices in.
Comments and suggestions welcome (pm?)

Enjoy :)

I do appreciate your efforts George!

Thank you so much!

I see that Stantons posted a sale list of prices too. They include the 10% buyers premium.

I wouldn't worry about "some" placing a lower value on the restored radios in his collection. Many like myself like the look of a restored radio.

Agreed, these prices shown the current market. For every person who wants an old finish, there is another who wants items to look like they did when new.

In going through the bids, the one thing that surprised me was the number of high bids on phonograph items.. I had no idea...

Ive heard that Stantons is well known to have phonograph auctions.

I suppose like Estes was to the radio community?

I could tell early in the auction that the phonograph people had a much deeper understanding as to the values of phonographs than did I. For example, things would be going at high prices and then up came an Edison Diamond Disk, Laboratory Model. The name sounds pretty fancy and the player was well restored. I have one, so I wanted to see what it would bring. Well, the bidding died off. When I bought this one, it just fell in my lap, so to speak. I wasn’t looking for it. I guess there are lots of them available. Anyway, the point is, they knew values and weren’t just high bidding.

Very true, further, for every original finish purist, there’s the antique, fine furniture, art, novelty, and audio types. Let’s see, when selling, there’s a 1 in 5 chance there’s that ad nauseam crowing “original” buyer. Nothing wrong here, subjective. “Presentable” wins, the rest is all in your head !

Fairly new to this forum and I just found this thread. I was fortunate enough to be a the auction all three days. It was MOST interesting. I wish I knew who some of you were!

I too, blew my budget. I play mostly with Philco's and EH Scott's. When the Zenith 15U270 came up, I figured I needed a shutter dial Zenith so I bought it for what I thought was a reasonable price. I've just started restoring the chassis. Most of the caps have been replaced with a hodgepodge of disc, tubular, and some I don't even recognize. I wish I had the originals to re-stuff. I hate the looks all the yellow film caps. Many resistors have been changed as well as the E-lytics. It was a poor restoration to say the least.

I also came home with the Zenith chair side, several cathedrals and the 2 EH Scott Philharmonics. The BOL Wellington had been partially restored but did not work well. it is now working great. The Gothic Pointer dial is in working condition, though I will go through it again as the alignment is way off.

I will be searching through the forum for info on the 15U270 as I would like to find a photo of the underside of an unmolested chassis. I will be needing a couple of filter cans and a tube socket. One of the rectifier sockets has a broken pin that had shorted out. Hopefully it didn't take the PT with it. Looking forward to help from some of you Zenith experts!!

This "restuffing" is not popular in California. Before you tear it apart, check, as it may work well and be properly aligned.
