I picked this one up today at an estate sale.
It is a Deforest Crosley type 70  ''Buckingham''
 It has two 6f7M tubes and they tested good.
The total tube count is 10.
the cabinet won't need refinishing, but will need a good touch up replacing some small pieces of veneer.

It is a monster as far as weight is concerned, and it has a separate power supply which weighs 45 pounds.
I think this one will be a winter project.

Beautiful radio! Nice burl veneer on this one. It sounds like it may be a nice performer when done.

Here are some photos of this radio  after I redid the cabinet.
 I also did the chassis  and it plays very well
