This transmitter was made in 1960 and was used until being placed in
storage in 1968 where it remained until recently. It looks almost like
new. The original 32 page instruction manual is included.
The front panel has three scratches by the crystal socket and one by the
band switch. One knob has been replaced - it's not like the others but a
fairly good match. The cabinet finish is very good with some scuff marks
and minor scratches; in one place the top is bowed down about 1/8" as if
something heavy was set on it. I slid the chassis most of the way out of
the case and it looks very clean, no rust, everything is intact and
appears original. Batting placed around the tubes in 1968 is still in
place. One OA2 is missing so I'll include a new one.
At first I thought I might put it on the air but I've had no experience
with this item and Globe enthusiasts will probably prefer me keeping my
hands off it and my soldering iron out of it. Therefore it will be sold
as is. Several months ago when I heard this might become available I
asked these groups for an estimate of it's value and received answers
covering a range of $350 to $600 depending on the usual variables. We'll
split the difference and ask $475 plus shipping.
It weighs 105# (probably 125# crated). The best plan would be for pickup
at my home in Bellevue, WA, or I could meet someone halfway within a 200
mile radius. Otherwise I'll crate it and ship as you instruct.
