I just got this Philco 52-940 for 7 bucks off Ebay:

$7.00 Philco  EmacK9s

$7.00 Philco  0BJGxwy

Any known issues, quirks or kinks with this particular model I should know about?

Nice buy! First and formost lets hope it arrives undamaged and as pictured. The only thing that you should be aware on these is possible silver mica disease of the IF transformers but besides that they are pretty much straight forward as far as restoration goes.

It did. It arrived today and I took those pictures. The bakelite is very dull so I've got some polishing to do! The back is mostly intact except, of course, the corners where the mounting holes were. Figured I'd glue some cardboard there and drill new holes. Can't complain for the price!
