Notes
These types of battery radios were often known as Farm Radios because of the lack of mains electric in remote farms.
This example arrived poorly packed and it had obviously had very violent treatment.
The dial was broken into many pieces and even the tuning capacitor had its ceramic mounts cracked and dislodged.
