Each week I bring you vintage early radio items. I have been collecting radios, phonographs, and music boxes for 46 years, and always have something interesting for sale. This was built for WW1 by National Electric Supply Co. The mahogany 1/2 inch thick wood case is solid, and has the latching front lid.
The front panel is clean and has no damage. The chassis looks mostly complete. The Crystal/Tube selector switch is missing behind the middle of the front panel, the knob is. There on the front so it's hard to tell unless you look inside.
The middle condenser has the middle plates missing, only seen from inside. These radios used either an external tube detector, or external crystal detector to receive stations. The radio receives from 1000-10,000 meters.This is from my personal collection. It has a very cool etched front panel to show how connections are made. This radio displays quite well and looks amazing for 103 years old. The radio is very heavy, and measures 23.5 inches long, 15 inches high, and 12 inches deep. This is a great WW1 wireless collectable for your collection or museum.
