I found this at an estate sale in the trash pile looks like it has all the original parts! Is it a good find or should I have left it?

I think you found on hell of a Stud! It is Pre 1964 (Or whenever UHF was mandated for all televisions. I think it was '64. Might have been '63.... It has all of the accessories in the original packages. The only thing I see wrong physically is the crack in the Plastic on the screen.

Again, Great find!

Thats a great find. Its not all that rare but with the boxs & accessories its
not at all common. I bet only one in a hundred are as complete.
If you do sell it do it on E-bay to max it out.

That's one of Sony's first "micro" TV's. There is a variant with gold colored knobs and trim that Sony gave to employees and distributors which I believe is now quite rare. I once had one but it was stolen years ago when someone broke into my house 40 years ago. A gold watch and the gold TV were the only things they took. I bought a non-gold version from a kind member selling one in the Classified section a few years ago. Came with original box and accessories like yours. Too bad yours has a cracked CRT cover.

That's an early model. Most I have seen (and the one I own) are the UHF variant. I've read those were the world's smallest production TV in 1964.

Given the price I think it was an excellent deal, as for the resale value that cracked plastic lens kind of kills it. I've seen a fair number of Sony micro TVs for sale of fleabay, and all that actually sell don't seem to go for large amounts, this may be why the estate sale pirates tossed it. You have to remember two things with these sets, first they are well over 55 years old, so they often need new electrolytic caps throughout, and second you need a convertor box to actually use them thanks to the HDTV fiasco. If you have never worked on any electronics you may want to take your friend up on his offer.
