Interesting battery hook up on this small multi-band (1 AM + 2 SW) transistor radio. You put in 6 penlight batteries and connect them to the chassis with a small cable that has a 9 Volt battery snap and snaps into the chassis with another reversed 9 V battery snap! The radio must have lived almost its entire life in the leather case because the actual radio case is very clean and flawless.

Works very well on all bands and sounds great!

Nice !
Is the mini leather case on the leather strap for spare batteries?

Definitely NOT made for the American market. The AM band is labeled medium wave and includes meters. My first impression is that it was intended for either the Japanese domestic market or the UK. I have a 1961 National sold in Japan that has the little earbud pouch. As more and more men who served overseas in the 50s reach end of watch we'll be seeing a lot more radios (tube and transistor) sold domestically in Europe and Japan hit the market.
