I picked this on up  from Kijiji. It is a Rogers model  8R723.
  I know the cabinet had a couple of dents that go right through the veneer,
but I can fix that.  All the tubes are good but the bonus is that it has a 6X6 eye tube that does show green.
I will have to put in a voltage doubler so it will be bright enough.
 It only has 7 tubes but it is a Rogers with pushbuttons.
My excuse for buying it , is  its' my first Rogers with pushbuttons.

I am sorry I didn't get these photos on here earlier.
Well I did the radio and have since sold it.
It did turn out very good and the 6X6 eye tube worked quite well.
I would like to keep a lot of the radio I do , but I just don't have the room.
Besides they all go to good homes and the people enjoy them.
Here are the photos.
