Someday, I'll find one of these I can afford. This one's out of my price range-it's near Kalamazoo, MI for $1750.

I like that one, but I will stick with the more affordable wooden sets, I can always burn them in fireplace when my electricity gets turned off. ( JUST KIDDING)

Ok, Tony-now you're just rubbing it in :lol: .
Since there are obviously too many Addisons up where you are, how about sending a few down here?

I notice the Addison "The Courthouse" radio was made from 1940 until about 1946 or 47. I assume they did stop production during World War II and picked it up again after 1945, with this model for maybe a year or two.

Most are the various colorful Catalin cabinets, but one is a wooden case. You don't see the wooden one's often, and when you do they are the "poor man's" version of the Catalin cabinets, at least today, as initially when first sold they were all probably were in the same price range.
The first model 5A in 1940 with a wooden case had a green Face Dial.
The later one's (not sure about the years) has the reddish brown glass Dial Face. It seemed to carry the model R5A3. The Patents dates on this one show from the back label 1940 through 1945, so this one was probably 1945 or after and one of the last one's produced :?:

I have one (Wooden Model R5A3) pictured below and wondered if anyone has been able to determine the years the various models were (and specifically this one) made as they seem to overlap with the only specific one being the Model 5A (wooden cabinet) with the green dial face made in 1940 :?:

As the grill cloth varies on the various Catalin and wooden models of this Addison "The Courthouse" radio, does anyone have a picture of the original cloth or know if the grill cloth was the same on all the original first radios made or if there were variations? As the above Addison wooden model appears untouched and original, I assume this is probably the original grill cloth (a darker reddish brown heavily weaved cloth) used on the wooden model probably made in 1945 and the subsequent 2 years the radio was made by Addison before being discontinued.
