Hello. is a very early TRANSISTOR radio. ADMIRAL 1950's large portable. T is no plug for AC. A battery set only. this uses C cells x 8 = 12 volts. I do not have the batteries BUT I did test this with my 12 volt CB power supply and YES, it works very good. Picks up all AM stations. No FM on this radio. The case is made of tin and is covered with tweed. Nice condition with no dents. and only one small spot w the tweed is torn on one bottom corner. Has a carry handle with a movable areal inside. Nice gold face with brown & gold knobs. Model # 237. Thank you for looking at my listings. All of the radios I am listing came from a radio shop of a guy that died in 1985. his estate never threw anything away. THE FINE PRINT.
