Bulova 2YC-23 AM/SW 7-Transistor Radio (1959) Bulova 2YC-23 AM/SW 7-Transistor Radio (1959).   The very first radio I bought was one identical to this; that was in 1959. Cost me $60, which was a lot for a high school student back then (I lost it along the way). I bought this as a memento, and it works on AM using internal antenna, but needs a whip or wire antenna for SW. Tuning is "scratchy" at places; would benefit from a tuneup. It is missing the leather case, whip antenna and nut at the antenna port. Has what looks like a cigarette burn near the antenna port. I found another with the case and antenna and had it rebuilt, so this is an extra. I think it is a rare radio. Except for the burn is in excellent condition and quite heavy. Nice chrome front. Uses four "AA" batteries. 6"W x 3-1/4"H x 1-5/8"D.  Phil Bartells.   E-mail: pbartells@verizon.net  $59.95.  (ends 10/14/2018)  (0000098)

Philco 51-930 (1951) Philco 51-930 (1951).   Please allow me to clarify that this is one beautiful gray Philco Bakelite radio with the original factory paint job! In addition to being knock-down gorgeous it, not unlike a person, has a couple of "unique" personality characteristics. Specifically, a rub spot (see picture) from too much polishing though the years and something I've never seen before: the decorative brass plate is a bit out of kilter. A rare radio to be sure. The brass plate is intact and the two rivets that hold it on the case are original. It appears to be a factory oversight. Electronically reconditioned and aligned with new paper and electrolytic capacitors, and all out of tolerance resistors were replaced. The six tubes are strong. Plays very good with external antenna for greater station sensitivity. On the Jim Dennis "Scale of Beauty" "She's Good Lookin' and She sure can Cook" Special!

RCA Victor 3-RD-35 Clock Radio (About 1960) RCA Victor 3-RD-35 Clock Radio (About 1960).   This is a working five-tube clock radio from about 1960. It has been re-capped and has a full set of good tubes. The cabinet looks pretty nice. The only visible flaw is a crack on the very side of the clock cover. Looking at the unit head-on this is not seen (see pictures). The clock motor runs quietly. The radio is working well, but might benefit from just a little more tweaking on the alignment. The PC board has a bit of darkening around the 50C5 and 35W4 tubes, as is typical of PC board based sets of this time period. All in all, a decent tube type (five-tube) clock radio at an affordable price. This is well suited to a radio hobbyist who likes the styling and color of this unit. A cheater cord is included. Double-boxed shipping is an additional $25. This sounds expensive, but there is absolutely no profit being made on shipping. Properly packing and shipping a delicate and sometimes heavy item simply is not cheap. PayPal only, please.

Transistor Radio Lot of Three: Realtone TR-8611, Channel Master, Sony Clone Transistor Radio Lot of Three: Realtone TR-8611, Channel Master, Sony Clone.   You get all three radios listed below.

Realtone TR-8611 Constellation, fair condition. I don't see any cracks nor chips other than a couple small spots of something hot touching the radio on the corner. Metal front is dinged up and dirty and radio has scratches and scuffs, probably a parts set, untested condition (9V battery connector missing).

Realistic (Radio Shack) 12-171, tiny "clone" of the Sony ICR-200 radio; somewhat similar to the Sony right down to shape, size and knob placement. Fair shape couple cracks on bottom otherwise not too bad, maybe a parts set. I tried it with a 9v battery and it barely tuned in stations, controls very touchy will need repairs if you want to use it.

Two-Tube Regenerative Tuner, Amplifier, Horn Speaker, Headphones (1920s) Two-Tube Regenerative Tuner, Amplifier, Horn Speaker, Headphones (1920s).   This radio set dates from 1923 or 1924. It is a two-tube regenerative type tuner with an audio amplifier that drives the horn or headphones. The horn and headphones have been checked using a 9 volt battery by touching the leads to the battery intermittently, producing a clicking, static sound. The last time the set was used was about 15 years ago; it was working then.
The power supply was built in the 1960's or 1970's by the original owner so that it can be run without batteries.
According to attached metal identification plates:
1. The tuner is a "Michigan 'Junior' Regenerative Receiver Type MRC-8 Manufactured by Klitzen Radio Manufacturing Company Exclusively for Michigan Radio Corporation Under Armstrong U.S. Patent 1,113,149, and Pending Letters of Patent 807,388. For Amateur and Experimental use only."
2. The tuner and amplifier are Michigan Radio Corp, Grand Rapids, Serial Numbers 1061 and 2027 respectively.
3. The speaker horn is Resonophone Mfg Co, Detroit Michigan, Patent Pending.
4. The headset is C. Brandes Inc, New York, Matched Tone, Patent Pending.
