The Royal 50L is the third version of the Royal 50. It has a recessed tuning dial that allows you to put the set into your pocket without changing the station, an improvement over the first two versions. Another change is the back now snaps on and off without a screw. To aid in opening the radio, there is a coin slot at the bottom that is almost always chewed up. The 50L came in red, yellow, turquoise, or black with the black and gold models having a gold face and grill, while the red and turquoise ones have silver. Weight is only 7.9 ounce. Size is 2 ½” wide, 4 ½” tall, and 1 ½” deep. The price when introduced in 1962 was $19.95
