The Royal 700 is the smallest and lightest of the early “lunchbox” leather portables. They produce a nice large sound without all of the bulkiness and weight of most other portables. This has made the 700 a favorite of mine to have on my kitchen table.
This radio shows minor wear to the leather covering and the distinctive metal grill is very nice, shining brightly without pitting. The leather handle is original and in tact. The back is secure as there is no tearing at the hinge point like most. There has been some attempt to keep the leather at the hinge pliable with leather conditioner. The snaps are good and still functional.
This radio is playing very well and sounds great. The battery tube is in great shape. This radio will perform for you daily for over a year on one set of (6) of the common “C” sized batteries. If you would like to hear it play before you buy it, click below
