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. It is playing well on local stations. Listen below. This requires 8 C batteries. The battery tube is clean, but the cap had a repair done to it sometime in the past but it works fine and as it should. The tuning lens has a hairline crack running through it in one spot, but all else is in nice condition.
