I can't believe this is getting bid up as high as it is. The cabinet's even cracked below the clock.

Seems to fall in the category of "Fabricating a bid history for the model." :roll:

It's a set I would hardly even see as a walked past by. What a farce.

I absolutely despise radios of that style with a clock.

they have to be the ugliest radios ever made.

hit it with a sledge and put it out of its misery.

43 bids by 6 bidders with most of it being done by 2 of them. Why do I not even have to look at the seller to realize that it's our old pal, Radios 10467. Look for that radio to be re-listed in a few weeks, now that he's established a "value" (cough cough) to show in the sold listings...

The seller actually bought a radio from me off of eBay. He sold-flipped it on eBay for twice as much as he paid for it (verified). He also got one off of eBay from a friend of mine. Ditto. More than doubled his money.
Great buyer, no issues.......he obviously does a better job of presentation than me.

This isn’t an endorsement of the seller. Just sayin’, eBay is a strange place.

I have the version without the clock. I think I paid 15-20 bucks for it a couple of years ago. It had bad silver mica caps in one of the small IF cans. It's really not that great of a radio - but hey, it's green - and made by Sparton!
