It's unusual to see a collection from such a tight timeframe and single manufacturer...

The only thing I find unusual is the abominable photos.

That's a great opportunity for someone who wants to start a collection of repetitive looking radios.

check out the tubes listed if I read it right 100 01a's and 100 UV99's, etc.. Imagine if they all tested good!

Yeah, could be 200 tubes thrown in.... But....

If each of 52 radios used only 5 tubes apiece, you'd need 260 tubes. So you're still down 60 tubes?

The ad doesn't say they're extra tubes, or that the radios have tubes in them.
