Love it! So many awesome-looking radios.

My wife says I can't add anything else to my bucket list, because there are no buckets big enough to hold what's on there already. :cry:

Boy, do I know it. Everyone says "sell some items", but I really like what I've acquired. The reason I got the item is exactly the reason why I don't want to sell it!

Ha! The seller mentions he bought the radio from Joe Milano. I haven't heard that name in years. Way back when I first started collecting, I bought several radios from Joe, two which I still own: A Philco 118 in custom cabinet and a Philco 70. Joe did very nice cabinet work, but it doesn't look like he did anything to this Majestic.

I have that same radio, but mine doesn't have a back on it. Wondering if the back really belongs on this one? Ad says it's a repro back.... None of the pics online show a back. Are they all missing? All of my knobs are the same as the two center ones. The dark accents make this a very pretty radio.

There is a Majestic Model 60 on Radio Museum with a back that looks identical. See https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/majestic_60_2.html. It also has the four same size knobs.

Just a side note... Joe is alive, well and still tinkering well into his 80s.... may be moving a bit slower, but still moving!!!
