I just picked up a philtain radio from the meet in Nashville. Its a coin operated radio and from the link below its for hospital use. I only found that reference and one describing a Philtain electrical company of Indianapolis Indiana. Anyone know of schematic or other info online. I don't thin I will need a schematic but if I did it would be nice to have one.

It's possible that Philtain's participation in it's manufacture might have been adapting a off the shelf radio to coin operation. That looks immediate post war, when there were all kinds of start ups making limited production radios with war surplus components. Remember Warco?
