Offered here is a rare bird indeed.  Ever see a white hand wired Royal 500 before.  A few of these got out of the factory with a mixture of parts: a hand wired chassis, Vernier tuning capacitor for gear-reduced tuning, white cabinet and knobs, with a 7XT40Z1 label on the battery door.  Such radios with a mixture of parts were produced during the transition away from hand wired  to printed circuit chassis.

The electronics of this radio are all original and it is playing as good as ever.  It uses 4 AA batteries and has a clean battery box.  This is truly a fine variation for your collection
