Some of the crazy things they did back in the day would be illegal today, lol. Or UL wouldn't pass them as safe.

The chassis is floating. Neither side of the AC line connects directly to it. One side does via a 470K resistor in parallel with a 0.05 uF cap if memory serves. I believe that is to provide a return path for RF.

Yes it is the RF return path but even though there is a.05 and 470k resistor, depending on what you may touch and the chassis there would be shock though, it has happened to me, not shocking, lol lol. I myself did measure line voltage from chassis to other areas of the set.
