Certainly a great looking cabinet. The price was very reasonable as well.

Nice bookmatched flame veneer. Too bad someone scratched the crap out of the front panel cleaning it.

Better than the price is the fact that it is only about twenty miles from me and he will deliver thus I avoid any shipping fees. Actually I bought two radios from and he is bringing them both. The other one is at https://www.ebay.com/itm/Radiola-25-Sup ... true&rt=nc

Two beautiful finds. They will make wonderful display pieces. I got a local radio I really wanted a while ago and was able to use the shipping money saved to out bid the others. That doesn't happen down here in So Florida very often.

Howard restore should make it look great. It hides small scratches. Car scratch restore should work on the front panel too. Price is good.

The panel is supposed to be mirror shiny black bakalite. It just has years of crud on it. I guarantee you that all that crud has not affected the panel. Just take the panel off the chassis and take off anything attached to the panel, clean it with GoJo and then polish it with car finish cleaner and then car finish wax. It'll wind up looking as mirror shiny new as the day it left the factory.

EVEN IF THE RADIOS WERE JUNK, YOU GOT YOUR MONEYS WORTH IN TUBES.
