new listing Atwater Kent
T-A unit (detector amplifier)

From my long time collection, I never realized the box label did not match the contents until I decided to put it up for sale (see photos). The box label read "2 stage amplifier" but it did not work. When I open to determine why, I discovered the unit was a detector amplifier. The original transformer was good but part of the detector circuit was removed. I rebuilt the detector circuit and it now works fine. With a little Photoshop work, I created a new, original looking label.
FOR SALE  Shipping weight 5 lb (est).

  $375.00 LESS TUBES + $15.00  shipping (if my actual cost is less by more than $2.00, I will do a refund of the difference).

King Radio RF Kit
 
Type R-1200 NEUTRODYNE Kit

From my long time collection, never used and in its original display box. Kit contains the *RF section of a mid 1920s 3-dial, battery radio using the Neutrodyne circuit. Kit contains the following:
 
  • Antenna coil

  • Primary coil

  • Secondary coil

  • Tuning condensers (3 ea.)

  • Neutralizing capacitors

  • Fiber screw-driver (for tuning)

The audio transformers, tubes sockets etc are not supplied, they generic items and can be obtained by the builder if he chooses to build.  In my opinion, the kit should kept as-is and not be built. Like any vintage kit, it's worth more if kept un-built.

box measures 13 x 8 x 4"

SPECIAL one of a kind, Hand Crafted Crystal Radio Receiver  "Mrs. Lowe"

From my collection, this one of a kind was very special to someone, a Mrs. Lowe many years ago. A beautifully made crystal radio built into sewing basket. My guess is that it was made for (whoever Mrs. Lowe was) as a gift. Who was she.... someone's favorite teacher maybe? We'll never know but one thing for sure, you can tell that it sat proudly in one position with the lid open near a sunny-side window for a long time. This can be determined from the images as the panel is sun-bleached from one direction (note un-bleached shadow areas).

Whoever built this was not only an excellent craftsman but clever and resourceful, take a look at the crystal holder image. It was made from a brass 12 gage shotgun shell. You very seldom find a home made radio with the rotary  switch points that are symmetrical. This radio is made as well (or better) as any factory made piece.

This came from the collection of an old-timer (who passed away about 20 years ago) in the Gresham, OR area. That's all I know about it.

Case/structure: Bakelite panel built into a sewing basket
Finish: Bakelite has sun bleaching except for the shadows
