This is a Philco Transitone Model 50-522 made in 1950. It is a five-tube design with a Bakelite case. The radio has been restored; old capacitors have been replaced, tubes and resistors were checked and replaced as needed, and it has a new power cord. The reception is strong with the internal loop antenna and it plays stations across the entire dial.

The case is in great condition with no cracks and has a good original shine. There is one small chip on the back edge of the case (see 4th photo) but the chip is essentially invisible when the radio is viewed from the front. The radio does not have its original back. Dimensions are 11-1/2" wide x 7" high x 6" deep.

The knobs are original and their gold inserts are not scratched or chipped. The gold dial is also in great condition, as are the white lettering inserts. The chassis is clean with no rust.

Price is $75. PRICE NOW $65. The radio is located in Boston. I prefer not to ship so a meet-up in the Boston area would great. I can also deliver it to the New England Antique Radio Club RADIO 50 show in Nashua, NH on March 3rd. If you live between Boston and Nashua I could also drop it off on the way.

If no takers for local delivery I will gladly ship (my Zip = 02129). It will be well packaged and insured. Thanks,

Dennis
