Please read & understand this before buying. Radios and
other items are graded using the following guidelines. Unless specified
otherwise, items being offered for sale are in "as-found" condition and will
need cleaning and probably, at least contacts cleaned. Each item will be rated
for overall appearance. For instance, a radio rated as "Excellent" will be ready
for display with cleaning and polishing. A "Very Good" radio will need a good
cleaning /polishing & possibly minor touch-up of the wood finish or the painted
surfaces. Then there is "Good", "Fair" & "Poor" which is a challenging
restoration project or a parts set. If a radio is graded "Very Good" then all
visible parts of it (dial, grille cloth, back, etc) are in the same, or better,
condition unless noted otherwise & the chassis, as much of it as we can see
without disassembly, will have little or no rust & appear to be complete. Any
cracks or chips that we see will be noted and photographed if possible. The good
points are not exaggerated & the observed faults are plainly stated. We try our
best to point out every defect we see that, when buying for our own collection,
we would make note of to determine how much the item is worth to us. The higher
priced a radio is the more scrutiny it is subjected to. After reading our
descriptions you might think we sell nothing but junk because we put the
spotlight on what is WRONG with the radio rather than try to make it appear
better than it is. There is a reason for that........ If you're going to be
surprised when you receive an item from us we want it to be a pleasant surprise.

"Working" or "works" in the description means we ran it briefly & got reception of some kind from it. Hum, distortion, etc will be mentioned when noticed. "Working" is meant more to reassure the Collector/Restorer that the set is not going to go up in smoke as soon as it's powered up than to indicate that it's ready to use. On most items you're probably going to have to, at least, clean the controls, probably recap a tube radio & maybe more. Working condition is stated as a separate item in the description & is not related to overall appearance rating. We just present it as found & describe honestly what we see & hear .
If you are not satisfied with any item (other
than "Exceptions" noted below) you receive just contact us within 5 days &
return it, prepaid, in the same condition as received. We'll refund the
purchase price, exchange it for another set of equal value or credit the
amount towards your next purchase. In the 48 contiguous states we will ship
the replacement, or future purchase, by UPS ground service AT our EXPENSE if
the weight is about the same as the returned item. S&H charges for shipments
outside the 48 states will not be reimbursed.

sometimes in pretty shabby boxes (many of these tubes are 50- 90 years old)
but we like to keep the tube with the original box when at all possible to
show that it is new.
