First Heathkit portable transistor radio, the model XR-1 .......$35 plus

Introduced in the fall of 1957. A kit radio from the early transistor
days, this radio uses seven socketed metal-cased transistors (2N252,
2N253, 2N254, 2N185, 2N185, 2N238). It's powered by six flashlight
batteries. The radio shows some wear but overall is in nice shape for
it's age. It works intermittantly.


I will ship overseas.
