That's a beauty!

Did you know that there is a "Baby Blades"? It has a single blade when viewed from the side.
Actually there a few of them by different manufacturers.
There are no less than nine variants of the Realtone TR-803 that use the same (modified) case.
Realtone used the same chassis for their TR-804 and TR-806 models,
there is the Star Lite "Jetra", Coronado, Hudson, Cronovox, Supreme 1606, Olympic 780 and Ambassador TR-803.

Here are some pics of my Jetra Baby Blade.

NICE!!

No doubt the late '50s & early '60s produced many classics.
