1939 Meissner TV on eBay!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/vintage-194...UAAOSw3T5cN7Ud
The seller seems to be oblivious to how rare a set he has there. These just do bot turn-up in any condition. Where's Steve on this one?! It should go to his museum. So worth the effort to get it restored. Extremely rare historic piece.

Well, the auction has been cancelled. I would suspect someone worked a deal. The set was worth many thousands of dollars.

No one bid on it!
Maybe, I'll get relisted.

Too bad there were no pictures of the chassis.

Yes, but it goes to show that the seller was totally oblivious as to what he had. I'd bet that chassis was complete.

I would be very surprised if the set comes back on eBay. I suspect the seller and some savvy buyer both have big grins about now!

I suspect that you're right! Very good odds that the next time we see it, it will be dressed in a field of green.

I guess it started at 99 cents this time. What a pleasant surprise.

It all comes down to greed with stuff like this. I can't imagine anyone wanting it for reasons not tinted with green.

I'd say someone wised him up so he cancelled and relisted it with model name and more info. The description now also says the auction will run to the end. Sounds like he might have been tipped off after receiving several offers to sell off site. The guys over at ARF have been all over it in a couple of different threads there too.

Im no expert but it looks all original to me, the electrical part.

There are honest buyers who give honest offers on ebay and then there are those that send lowball offers right after you list something trying to get a bargain. Ive been a seller for years and have seen both many, many, times.

I learned quickly to never end an auction as it isnt fair to the honest buyers and to hell with the dishonest ones.

My hat is off to this seller even if he knew what he had. No crazy frilly listing, just the basic facts with pictures.

Chassis layout is a work of art. Components nice and neat at right angles.
