I was amazed at this when i removed it from its original box and saw the condition of this fantastic clock radio! It was like taking a trip back to the late 50s and opening the box for the first time! I tested it and it is in PERFECT WORKING condition all functions working as designed and solid as a rock! The sound is clean no hum or distortion. The clock is quiet running and keeps perfect time!Make no mistake folks this is a rare find and a not very often seen Silvertone model clock radio! The dials and cabinet only have some residual minor dust particles and the cabinet may have a micro brush like scratch that is most likely from picking it from the box or testing it from time to time over the years, however very insignificant, i prefer not to even polish or clean off anything on this gorgeous radio! This set incorporates a vernier tuning dial 6 to 1 gear ratio for refined tuning you seldom see on these sets! Not much more to be said here! I cannot say how long it has been sitting unused in the box but from the close examination and the factory condition its PERFECT in every way! If you have any other questions please ask, these are only a once in a blue moon find! One of the best i have seen in years, all paper work is included from the original box and i will also include the factory tag that still remains attached to the power cord on this PRISTINE condition ORIGINAL! We will pack this set to prevent this and fully insure!! The overall dimensions are as follows >10 " in length, 6 1/2" tall, and 4 deep! We are ALWAYS here to help PLEASE ask any questions we don't bite, and we stand behind what we sell!
