This "collection" is for sale for waaaaaay too much money, but the console on the right has piqued my curiosity. Can anyone tell me what it is? - It seems I have seen that grille, or one similar, before...

***EDIT*** Nevermind, I found it - It's a G.E. M-86....*gotta get these glasses fixed :oops: *

Der... Me too!

I just spotted it, then continued to look for 10 minutes, till I spotted it again.

Yes, GE M-86.

Contact the seller and leave an offer for that GE just in case the seller come to the realization that nocody's going to pay $400 for all that.

The GE is nice, and the RCA racetrack dial is always a looker. The Motorola on top is a solid little radio as well.

The RCA 19K on the left is a nice set and is probably one of the best looking slide-rule dials ever made. Neither the RCA 19K or the GE M-86 are too tough to find, so I'd wait for a better deal. That person seems to have their head in the clouds.

I figured I'd let them set for a little while, then make an offer for the racetrack and G.E.. Considering his current asking price, I think the offer I'm willing to make will go over like a lead balloon....

There are six radios and a cabinet full of related items. Divide $400 by seven and you get approximated $57 each. That would be about $114 for the two consoles. Seems fair to me.

The Radiola 60 looks like an empty cabinet. The little ones are maybe $20 each. Consoles maybe $75 each. Unless you get especially lucky, the tubes are likely common dime a dozen types. $200 on a good day to haul it all away assuming you want the consoles and if they have no major flaws.

I would be into them (the 2 consoles) for no more than a buck ($100) apiece, $50 - $75 each, preferably. The others I have no interest in, unless they would be reasonably easily flippable (is that a word?) to recoup a bit of the outlay...... The RCA looks like it has severe "Hoover burn" around it's base - is that photo finish?
