Offered here from my personal collection is this classic Black Silvertone model 211 six transistor pocket radio made in 1959. This radio is affectionately referred to as the “Bow Tie” model because of its unique tuning and volume windows. This radio measures 6″ tall, 3″ wide, and 1.5″ deep. The black plastic cabinet is flawless and displays beautifully.
I believe this radio was designed to use the old obsolete round 9 volt battery, but it has been updated to run on today’s common 9 volt battery. When loaded up, it plays strong with good tone. The sensitivity is impressive. Listen:
The looks of this unique model are stunning, and one that should be represented in all fine collections. A better example of this model you will not find.
