Anyone know what this is, and would it be worth grabbing for cheap?

That's a Fairbanks-Morse (don't remember the model number) and it's definitely worth getting. How much are they asking for it?

WOW and the cabinet looks in good shape. A little cleaning and some touch up
and you may have a pretty radio there.

They guy posted it for $25. I replied right away. His post was 1 minute old. He now says that I am "second in line". I know what that means. Someone probably offered him more when he told them I said I wanted to buy it. Not sure I would have had a place for it anyway.

Not I. I was out of town till late last night.

Seller may not have had a better offer, but may legitimately have had an earlier offer. I have noticed the time at which an ad shows up can differ by as much as 10 minutes between devices, for example, my computer and my cell phone. I don't really trust the time craigslist shows to the exact minute.
