Due to health issues I will be taking a "back seat" and allowing other family members
to manage the sale of my collection. You will receive the same attention and level of integrity
as always. Thank you for looking!

Just what are we hearing? In 1973, between Jaime Brockett II and North Mountain Velvet, an alert listener captured 
these two demos played during an interview on a local radio station - I do not have the name of the station. The 
interview was live but the songs had been recorded previously in a studio. The first, Pine Tree is unusual for Brockett,
with the female backup vocals and the Hammond organ! According to the listener,  the second, Ballad of Thunder Road,
features Johnny Hartford and Tony Rubino. It's a unique unpublished treasure from nearly 40 years ago.

Well, here is something different...

Atwater Kent Model 10 breadboard radio

Here is a 1923 Atwater Kent breadboard radio, Model 10, part number 4950. The breadboard has a nice 
mellow matte brown finish rather than the glossy finish with the decorative routed edges.  Corners are 
square: it is made to fit into the Pooley cabinet. The production and warranty tag is still intact "in case of 
complaint please return this tag" and the number 6015 is stamped in the wood on the underside of the 
breadboard. The five tubes include four 201A RF and AF amplifiers, and a UX-200A detector. T have not 
assaulted this fine old radio with  Brasso or other cleaners -preserving the original patina.

Breadboard size 10 x 29 inches.

Now for the functional stuff: all five tubes'  filaments light but there is no audio output.  All knobs and controls work freely. You can see from photos 11 and 12 that there are some coils of wire loose from one of the components. I do not have the old original battery wiring cable.
There is a place on the 3-tube detector/amplifier unit where it looks like one of the tube sockets has been epoxied to the top of the unit. Hopefully you can see that in the photos.
Please look carefully at the photos and don't  hesitate to ask any questions.
Fuse is dead. (I used a cheater cord to bypass the fuse block for testing.)  I think that the "filament" button has been removed. To my eye the wiring underneath looks like at least some of it has been replaces.
This unit was working 15 years ago when I first got it, and I suspect that I am just not getting all the hookups right. This radio is ready to provide a fun experience to a tinkerer.

Here are a few of the nostalgic records and advertising items that I have to offer...my apologies for some of the low-res scans.

Aeolian Vocalion 78 rpm colored "wax" record

Beautiful vivid colors!

 A similar copy of this record sold in a 1997 (?) Nauck auction for over $400. 
Songs: There's a Long Long Trail / Allied National Airs. 
Aeolian Company A22024.Label date is 1916. Nice VG+ visual condition. 
Plays more like VG. You should be hearing it now, if not email me for a sound clip. 
Note that "National Airs" side has a serious sticking problem and the first part of it just does not play satisfactorily.

This is a rare opportunity for the serious collector.

 

SOLD Thank You
