In some of my old junk, I found an old transistor radio. The box says model M4D and stock #69-042. I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me if it's old junk, or actually worth trying to sell.<P>------------------<BR>

Hi,<P>It's definately not junk. The Mantola was built by Regency and is a variant of the Regency TR-4 model. It dates around 1957 or so. Depending on condition, they sell for 150-$300 on Ebay. If you have the original box and accessories, it may be worth $500 or more in pristine condition.<P>Jim<P>------------------<BR>

<P>Geez, how come my junk always ends up just being junk? That was a nice find! The Mantola version doesn't show up often.<P>------------------<BR>

Michael,<BR>I bought a red Regency Tr-4 on Ebay. The back was taped to the front with masking tape. I put a $160 bid on it thinking nobody would bid that high. Well, they did and I got it for $160. The masking tape glue ate right thru the plastic leaving melt marks all over it. I was so annoyed with myself that I polished it with Novus for a week until all the melt marks were gone.<P>jim <P><P>------------------<BR>
