This wee gem was bought off a local auction site. Its a circa 1925 Silvertone knock off made by King Hinners of the US. Its a 5 valve nuetrodyne, requiring 90, 45 1,5 and 6 volts in batteries. It is in beautiful condition. Even the horn speaker looks nice. Im unsure if it goes, the original valves test good, the heaters at least. I need to build a nice wooden case and may also make a small mains power supply disguised as a battery box.
Because its in such good condition, I did wonder if it was a fake, but it does have the old bright emitter valves and the Thordasen interstage transformers. Not sure with the horn speaker, the trumpet appears to be aluminium...... did they have aluminium in the early 1900s?
Anyway, enjoy the pics.
Wow, if it is a "Fake" its a beautiful one. If you get it working , would love to see it.
