I don't know that it isn't German. Could be Polish for all I know. :? :wink:
Close up shot shows no label inside.

Is low-end 4-tube chassis in home-made cabinet.

Maybe worth $10-15 for the tubes and speaker......

Not German. It's a west coast radio for sure. Those knobs were common on Jackson Bell radios in the early 30s. It doesn't look like a homemade cabinet to me. One thing's for sure... It's a very rare radio!

The chassis and dial look very similar to the Buckley radio in this thread:

Here's another model that has shown up, with a larger chassis:

Pics for posterity. Someday we might figure out what it is!

Hey Rodney, to add to this when I asked if he had any others he sent me 2 more pics to my phone.
One spiked my interest, and look at the knobs on this Jackson Bell 62 (Swan) Hmmmm.......

Yup, those knobs show up on all the Jackson Bell radios, the 62s, the 68s, 25,26,27s, 84,86,87,88s...

It was pretty much "the Jackson Bell knob." But I think it may have been used on other radios, too, that were probably made in the same factory.
