Wonder if it is unused/NOS?

There is wear on the left dial. I think it was used.

Cool, my dad found a Radiola IV the same way in Maine when I was a kid.

There's no way to tell if the radio is really from that crate. If you find a box and paperwork, you can use any set with it. The set would have to look extraordinarily excellent to be convincing. I must say it would make a nice museum display though. You just have get a nice Radiola 100 speaker to go with it.

Radio is still bolted to 2 wooden slats that held it in place inside the crate.

Deceptively sounding like it's NOS, thus, avoiding any responsibility for making false claims. Oh, this seller is shrewd.

As mentioned the dials look aged and there's also wear of the "Station Selector" dial escutcheon. I'll bet the battery cable looks used to.

Yes, there is a way. Match the serial numbers. The box has serial #168442. I don't know where the serial # would be on the radio itself. The radio is obviously used.

So where does one find the serial number on a Radiola 20?

Supposedly, the serial number is stamped on the frame. But, I've never looked for one on a 20 so this is only acquired knowledge via the Internet.

Pretty sure they didn't use Phillips heads for the chassis bolts either :lol:

EDIT: disregard. I realized I was looking at the wrong auction. I hate it how ebay sends you automatically to a "similar" auction when the original is over.

I didn't see any Phillips; what did I miss? It has the red shipping bracket in place.
