Admiral Color Roundie ~ Hamilton, OH (Cincinnati) ~ $100

A bit rough but I bet she'd clean up nicely. This one has the control panel that folds into the cabinet when not in use. Not sure what's up with that CRT cataract, it has some yellow/green shading like a Zenith, but also grey cloudiness like an RCA type. Ad is a few weeks old, I'm surprised nobody has posted this before me.

The green is a sulfide phosphor tube.

I would at least look at this set if I were closer (a lot closer) to Cincy, and if I had the room in my apartment for a console. I am some 300 miles away, in northeastern Ohio. Shipping is out, as I am sure the shipping charges from Cincinnati catty-corner upstate to where I live would be more than I would be willing to pay.

BTW, I can understand what a lot of you VKers say about wanting but being too far away from a TV or radio listed on CL or eBay. Since I don't drive (never have), I can't possibly get any of these gems like that Admiral. That set in particular is unique in that it has the tilt-out control center, which no other TV manufacturer I know of ever offered. (It wouldn't surprise me if Admiral had a patent on the design.) I am by no means certain, but I would think this model could be quite rare and sought after by collectors, if only for the tilting control panel. In any event, I hope someone (preferably a collector here on VK) gets the set and gets it working again, as it once did. It will take a lot of work (the usual restoration, including recapping and replacing the CRT), but I'm sure whomever gets this TV will be very pleased with it once the set is properly restored. The usual warning against just plugging it in without doing anything to it applies here as well.

Zenith. Gone, but not forgotten.

Sears and Setchell Carlson both offered tilt out control panel TV sets.

I like this one. If the CRT is good and someone could hold it until the ETF or bring it to them for storage until the meet I'd be happy to chip in a $50 handling fee on top of the price.

Did those two companies make round-screen sets with that design?

Dunno. The Sears I saw in person and the S-C I own were both rectangular.

Wow... I missed that one. I was JUST there for Christmas. My Home town. the 29 years I lived there from the time I was born, I NEVER saw a roundie set ever pop up. Except for the Zenith which I have now, curbside find originally in 2004/2005ish.
