Midwest Regal: https://www.ebay.com/itm/165055487069?h ... SwsWhhNWR7

$1500 for what is basically a dusty and dirty Midwest 18-37 chassis with a "Regal" dial escutcheon. Value wise, it breaks down to about $250 for the 18-37 chassis and $1250 for the dial escutcheon. Without the special amplifier or speaker system, it's just a renamed 18-37 receiver chassis.

Looks to be in very nice original condition which is kind of rare for Midwest radios. Seller is open to offers. I'd say $350 in it's original unrestored condition would be a fair price. Around $850 in totally restored working condition. If anybody winds up getting this set, I have a spare main tuning knob.

For the missing pearl on the main knobs, just buy thin sheets of genuine pearl, cut and shave them down to circles and insert them into the knobs. Looks just like the original pearl inlay because it's real pearl inlay. Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R ... &_osacat=0
