Well, I don't really collect this stuff but I do like to latch onto something I find unique or rare.

I picked up this transistor radio at a garage sale. The woman that sold it to me didn't like that I tried to talk her down, she got quite upset. In the end I think I paid something like $10. Its a Juliette Model APR 256a in pristine condition with original packaging, earbud, warranty and instruction card and the cheezy vinyl case with strap. I don't think it's been used. Made in Hong Kong.

To think when I was a kid I would tear several of these things apart to satisfy my curiosities.

That was probably more than it sold for new.
I read somewhere that they built those radios for less than one US dollar in quantity.

Probably a good thing you did!
Maybe there'll be some action again. Every old radio collector I know has a few of them.

I have a few. Here's the one that came with me to work this morning:



GE P110-D I think. 6 transistor, 2 AA batteries, cleaned up and re-capped!

See the way the tuning knob is held on. It makes a lot of sense!
It runs on two penlite cells. A lot better battery life than a nine volt battery.

A few...

A few I put out for display. They are all functional, with a hundred more in storage. Lack of space now , but I'm working on it- I know, I need to dust!

I have a Silvertone like that.
IIRC, it has a three gang tuner tuned RF stage. One of the few Silvertone radios built by Warwick.
Most were made by Arvin.
