I just found it in some old things that belonged to my Grandmother I haven't tried to operate it. What do you mean about the wear marks I didn't notice any but would need to look at it again to be sure...thanks

dont leave it wrapped like that.
you will get melt marks where the cord touches the case.

If it's been wrapped like that for all these years, it most likely already has melt marks from the earphone twisted wire. Regardless, they should be unwrapped. If you are going to market it on eBay, a buyer should be able to clearly see the entire front of the case.

According to my 1996 Bunis Transistor guide, it's a three Transistor set, with the value as $80-95.00. That doesn't necessarily mean that it will bring that, it's just an estimate.

I would suggest installing a battery, probably takes a nine volt that you can get at a dollar store, and trying it. If it works, so much the better, but non-operational status is not a deal killer. Having the box adds value to it.
