This is one of few radios from my original childhood collection.  It will be a greater challenge to restore than most early battery sets, as somewhere along the way, an "experimenter" fairly butchered the inside in an attempt to convert it from a five tuber to a three tuber--using two 19s and a 27. (Yeah, like I could make that up!)  Don't ask if it ever worked that way.

This one dates to relatively early in the model 20's run, in the case commonly known as the "big box".
