These are rarely turning up these days. This one is a good candidate for restoration, although finding the correct channel selector is not going to be easy. Also, recapping these are a bear. A friend did my leatherette portable version and worked from the evening into the early morning hours! That's typical for him by the way when he gets on a roll. I had the wooden one years ago and must say, when restored, they are one of the best performing 7" electrostatics next to the Admirals and the Sentinal/Airline's.
These Emerson's are the only very compact cube shaped 7" TV's by the way.

I just picked up one of these recently.

I'll be interested to see what it sells for.

Even though these were once plentiful, they're rather hard to come by these days, I think the value has gone down a bit on these early post-war sets. These Emersons are unique with their very compact and light cube shape, so I think this one, missing all tubes, back, and an untested CRT should at least break the $100 mark. A really great little performer.

I have two of them, one restored and working, the other untouched.
They are tough to work on because of the size, the cabinets on the other hand are a breeze for the same reason.
