It's not bad. Board has been refinished and cap replaced. Sold As-Is. I would like to see a photo of the T/A insides. I wouldn't buy it, but many will be interested.

There are two well known Atwater Kent experts here (atwaterkentsrus and leigh) maybe they will respond to your question.

GL,

Ray - It's the early version of the model 9, 4445. The later 9C, 4660 used condensers instead or variometers.
There's also a 9A, 4445A with a different layout also using variometers. I have the 9 and 9A. If you don't have one and the price is right, why not? I would ask for pics of inside the tube island.

( I just ordered a case for the AK12. Did you get the Radiodyne we had talked about awhile back Ray?)

I wouldn't pay as much for this example as I would for one in all original nice condition but I'm sure someone will.

What is this model normally valued at in nice original condition?

I would't be surprised to see one that's all original go for $1600.00 or more in very good condition, especially the earlier versions.

It's obvious it's not 100% original, but not in bad condition. If the TA unit is still untouched inside, I would think it would be worth about $900 -$1000.
I wouldn't be surprised to see a $1200 bid.
It does have one of the paper tags on the bottom, which is a good thing.

I think your right on target for this one Jimmy and glad to see you agree about what's in the T/A. Again, I'd ask seller for photos.

Jimmy:

I think you nailed it, with 12 hours to go it is @ $1,286.00

Opening a TA, if original, could possibly break the brittle sleeves of the wiring coming from the tar.
Probably won’t create any problems. :idea:
