Offered here is an exceptional example of an early hand wired Royal 500. This radio is in beautiful original cosmetic condition and displays well. It has been recapped and is again in playing like a champion. Listen to it play: DSCN5428
The radio’s stats are:
Model # – R500YA, Year – 1956, Chassis – 7XT40, Serial# 46,588, Original? – Recapped, Volume = 9/10, Tone = 9/10, Sensitivity = 9/10
Cosmetic ratings: External = 9/10, Internal = 9/10
It is unusual for this early model to have the quality sticker on the battery door, a real bonus. The cabinet has avoided wear and scratches and shines like a new radio. The metal accents are bright and dent free also. Just a great looking example.
