By date and model number, your manual is apparently for an RCA Radiomarine transmitter model several years earlier than the models built for WWII Liberty ships. If any have survived, it might be at a place like the Maritime Radio Historical Society

Most such equipment was either scrapped or sunk and few operators who knew it remain today.

Ebay will maximize your exposure to the few people who might know of this transmitter and want your manual. Don't expect to get rich on this one.

Just start it at $9.99. If someone needs it they will pay that for sure. And if more than one it could go much higher. Copies of original manuals often sell for $15-20.
