Philco 38-62 (1937-38 model)


Cabinet has the original photo-finish front. There's a coupla dings, but not bad enough to justify losing the original finish. Top and sides have been redone. Dial cloth is a new, exact reproduction.

Uses octal tubes 5Y4G, 6A8G, 6K7G, 6Q7G, 6F6G. The 38-62 was presented as a 2-band set (BC and Police) but the upper band only utilizes the IF image with a different antenna coil to produce a "separate" band. No, they didn't learn this cheap trick from the Taiwanese, this was American ingenuity. Dial is a perfect replacement from the late Mr. Clint Blais...not faded out as so many originals are.

Rust-free chassis, clean innards. Excellent operating condition.
