I went to look at the set and couldn't pass-up on it. It has an incorrect, but very nice good-tested C-12 tipped, brass-based Cunningham tube, but I'm using an O1A to play it. I hooked-up a 6V lantern battery and a series of 9V's and it works excellent! It definitely needed a ground. I'm amazed with it.
Thanks very much for everyone's input.

That's Eddy. When you see one of these in person, and love early sets, it's a must have. It's really a cute little set and it plays very well!

Looks like a nice one!

What did you end up getting it for?

$275 from a local collector friend. I felt it was fair considering the condition and that it works. I didn't even haggle.

I realize that this thread is five years old but just to possibly show the difference that time makes in price I will post this. On August 28, 2021 I purchase a working Pup in super condition with a 01A tube at the IARCHS Annual Antique Radio Auction in Marshalltown, IA for $120.00.

That's a great deal Don. The very recent prices on EBay are lower too. More bargains in the summer with fewer bidders around. I'm curious to see if bids go back up this winter as they usually do.

Just out of curiosity, how does a 1924 Crosley Pup one-tube radio compare with a 1924 Martian Beauty one-tube radio -- regarding value, rarity, performance?

I have always liked both but haven't yet bought one -- at least they don't take up space.

The Martian Beauty is 10 times scarcer, 10 times more valuable and (IMHO) 10 times more interesting. The Crosley Pup, on the other hand, works 10 times better.
