Well, a bit pricey, but, looks like physically, its' seen a very good life.
I think grain on outside doors is photo finnish, but, looks great, from what they show.
Set is a collectable, and, worth saving.
I won't say they are an easy set to work on. They aren't.
But, If you like it, and, can pick it up, it's worth getting. Looks lie it's a combination tv, radio, phono.
Is it 19"? Looks like it....

Thanks.
Tony, Got radio back together. What a mess!
Did a quick lube on 45 changer. Missed that the first time. That fixed a record dropping issue.
Now, I have to find a motor, and, cartridge for other changer, and, rebuild tv.
