I never saw this rather cute model. I like it even better than the larger boxy Tradio models. Too bad it just didn't have a nice decal on the front, but I like the chrome trim. It's in exceptional shape too. I have a feeling the ending bid will be more than I would want to pay for it.

Nice one! There was many coin-op radios made in the '40's before TV took over including Tradio, RCA, Dahlberg, Coradio, Radiomatic, Jetco, Selexatune, Controla. and Hotel Radio Corporation.

Honestly, I had about 4 of these over the years and ended up selling off all of them. None of them, unfortunately, are really great looking for a collection. The worst is the one that looks like an old painted over restroom paper wall dispenser. I actually was glad when it arrived damaged and the seller took full responsibility. It was big and UGLY! :o :)
