for that money, it better be pretty darned good cosmetically/electronically. Just my opinion...Ive been surprised what people are asking for some beaters on "that site".

Cosmetically fair but undamaged, small rust spots near base of handle. (It was on a sailing vessel.) Also, all but one of the rubber feet are missing.

Fully functional!

Loud and clear on all bands, smooth function of band selector, and the sound is simply beautiful. Extremely sensitive and selective.

Worthy of the Transoceanic name!

I see restored models in mint condition going for upward of $500!

Happy radio nut here.
