1923 Cutting & Washington, seller has been trying to sell this for a long time and doesn't move on price or use the best offer option. I like it, for about half of what he's asking. What do you guys think, I'd like some other opinions?

It can't hurt to message the seller with an offer(or to see if he would even CONSIDER an offer). The only stupid question is the one left unasked. You never know how it could work out. Worst case he says no, or maybe he'll make a counter offer (I've been surprised many times). Failing that, if it's something you really want, don't know when you'll see another, and can swing the outlay, go for it.... Sometimes you have to overpay for one to balance out the "steals", but only you can determine if it's "the one". Just my $.02.

Not that interested in it, I'm looking to pick up a pre-1920 radio next.

The radio is nice but it has some issues that I doubt the seller is aware of. First, it's not a teledyne; it's a 12A. The reason the seller may not know it's a 12A is because it's missing the front cover, where the metal tag is located. It also appears to be missing the battery brackets inside the cabinet and the handle on top. The missing handle is pretty typical. The handles were flimsy and couldn't support the weight of the radio loaded with batteries. Anyhow, I sold a nice complete 12A a few years ago (working) for about $500, so I think the price may be a bit high.

Thanks for your input Grant, and keep an eye out for that radio I'm looking for. :wink:
