Hi all,
I purchased a group of radios for very little money and among them was this unusual Standard SR-F21. It may be a later model as I can't find any on line with the gold face on the dials. Egg asked me to post some pics of it here.
The radio is absolutely in mint/unused condition with a very shiny finish on the plastic. No Hairlines or pry marks on the back cover. It looks like it's never been out of it's protective leather case. Earphone looks unused as well. I don't have much interest in transistor stuff (I do have a "Toot a loop" and a few small pocket radios), but more interested in tube types. The 9 v battery contacts have been updated to take the newer 9v battery configuration, without any cutting, so the original set up for the 9v with contacts at either end is still intact. Will pick up a 9v today and see if it works.

The SR-F21 is the second transistor radio that was manufactured by Standard:

As Standard did not sell the SR-F21 in the US market, it is rare to find one for sale in the domestic market. - Mark

I've always liked that model Standard. They made it look like it was ready to fall forward.

Just one more, LMK if you ever want to sell, or trade it for table or portable tube sets.

I'll hang on to it for now but certainly keep you in mind.

fifties - I think that this blue Standard SR-F21 would look good next to your blue Regency TR-1! - Mark
