No. But seems like the same clock as the Sparton 319C "Eye Opener." Same 4 little metal knobs.

I've seen them before but they are very uncommon. From the very tail end of Fada production. That telcron clock was in a lot of old radios, although the knobs could be different.

If my memory serves me correctly the 200 was introduced in late 1954 along with the 660 in the same cabinet style minus the clock.

I've seen bad IF's in the 47-48 product but none in the '50's yet they are all from Automatic (119). PM me your email address and I send you folders on the sets.
Note that the pictures show a different model of the clock than what was used in production. All the ones I have are sort of cream faced. That does not mean, however, that yours has been replaced as they could have made a production run using a clock they could get. The Korean war was not kind to our electronic manufacturers.

The last SAMS Photofacts I see for Fada is in 1956. Sparton made it to 1959 it seems.
