This radio is from early in the short production run of the Royal 800s. It has the lowest serial number I have seen at #42,901. A true classic, these are getting very hard to find in any kind of collectable condition, but this one is nice. It is all original and features 7 original GE top hat transistors. This requires 8 C batteries and plays well. The battery tube is clean, and the cap has been glued sometime in the past, but it works fine. The tuning lens has a hairline crack running through it in one spot, but all else is in nice condition. Just listen to it play!
