valuable radios

Post by willy3486 on Tue Mar 18, 2014 9:06 pm

The 2 year magnavox post got me to wondering what radios are valuable out there a person might see if they are extremely lucky.
Maybe radios worth 1000 or more . Even if you have never seen one, only 10 made, etc , truly valuable sets worth getting. Not the 1960 RCA radio the rich guy paid a grad for because he had one as a kid, but radios that will bring big money almost every time. Here are ones I can think of now, can anyone add more?

Fada Bullet
Almost any catalin radio
Sparton blue mirrored radios, bluebird and Nocturne for example
HH Scott
Zenith Stratophere 1000z
Zenith Walton
I am thinking these will sale for 1000 or more.

Any others? What about the Atwater Kent breadboards or early 20s Radiola ones.. Any ones on TV beside the Walton? What about the Packard Bell I think it was on Gilligans Island?

I  think you meant EH Scott, not HH Scott. No relation between the 2.

I would add any 1930's McMurdo Silver sets, and Radio Bars with their glassware.

RCA Berkshires for sure. Any 15 tube shutter dial console Zeniths from 1930's.
Big dog "The Fisher" consoles like the 42 tube President. Crosley WLW console.
Maybe a red Neutrowound from 1927. Midwests with their original 1930's deco cabinets for sure.
These are more rare than McMurdo's IMO.
Philco 509X maybe.

A great thinking thread as most of my sold radios were less than $1000.
Maybe more later if I think some about it.

Edison Model C2 radio, phono. The only one that will also play Edison Diamond Disc records. The C4, while rare, doesn't even come close to this one.
How about Catalyns?
While you are at it, any specialty sets such as Howdy Doody, and, Hopalong Cassidy????

I have seen a few Micky Mouse clock radios make by GE, and they are considerably more that any other GE clock radio they are based on.
