Offered here is a seldom seen model from 1962. It is the Royal 265 looks similar to the popular 275 issued in 1959, but is actually like the economy model Royal 250 except with the addition of Vernier tuning. It was offered in Brown, Ebony, or Beige and sold for $29.95 ($10 less than the 250 in 1959).
The radio offered here is the beige version. The cabinet is in nice condition and has no chips or cracks or other damage. The metal face is not perfect, but not bad either. Inside, the six transistor chassis has been updated with new capacitors and is playing with surprising volume and good station selectivity. The battery box is very clean.
