Too bad it's a post-war side-by-side combo.

I agree, it is a very unique and innovative dial system.

I had a chance to buy one several years ago, but I just had to walk away. I must exercise control…

Who would have thought something so neat looking would be hiding in such a plain cabinet?

I know it is not much of a cabinet to begin with, but someone made it even plainer by changing the hardware, painting it brown and putting plain cloth into it. Bleh.

Here is another Sparton which uses the same cabinet. Maybe slightly nicer? ok, then maybe not…
