Only $60. The dial isn't too bad.

Doesn't seem to show up as often as either the 811K or the 813K. Not sure why.

One additional IF stage over the 811K.

Perhaps the cabinet styling caused it to be a slow seller?
Not saying the 812K is ugly, but I think the 811K is more attractive.

Either way, it is a worthy model!

I agree that it's the least often seen model in that '38 line of consoles. Not one of Vassos best designs, but you can see he was going for a cleaner modern look over the more typically styled (and more attractive) 811K. Hopefully the plastic control tabs have been pushed into the cabinet. That's very common. Interesting enough it looks like it has the elusive factory tuner setting tool in it's slot on the chassis.
A nice find if you the space!
