Here's one I can't identify. Looks like a cap/coil for tuning, a detector, and two stages of AF. Also appears to be factory printing on the schematic, but can't make out any ID info. Maybe one part near top center says "Interphone", but not sure. The windows to view the tubes are covered with some type of film. With the brass mounting HW, maybe this was an aircraft or ship radio of some sort?

What kind of tubes would a receiver that early use?

EDIT: I found the answer: VT-1 tubes.

Hi all,

I purchased this set and it arrived today. There's a posting with photos and some info on the Antique Radio Discussions forum here. Thanks to MadRad45 for posting a link to the Craigslist ad last week.
