Mine has the coils but need to put in the dial numbers. I have a template to do it, when I get around to it. My first kit and receiver was an Ocean Hopper that got me interested in short wave radio. Didn't have the money for the coils and we just broke some old tubes and used the bases as coil forms. No test equipment, just wrapped enamel wire around the base and tried to determine what frequency I had. Lots of great fun and nice memories. I thought the going rate of $100 was a lot a few years ago, but can't imagine anyone paying hundreds of dollars, especially $500+. Shocked Shocked
