1930's Plaskon radio - Emerson U-5A Mini Tombstone
- Source: eBay
This auction is for a Restored 1930's Emerson U-5A Mini Tombstone Radio with Ivory Plaskon Cabinet. The cabinet has no cracks, breaks or chips and but one very minor hairline . The grill cloth , knobs and dial are all original and in excellent condition. The molded Plaskon back is also on the radio and is in very good condition. I have replaced the radios Filter Capacitors as well as all the wax tubular capacitors , replaced tubes as required, cleaned controls and aligned the IF and RF stages of the radio. The radio has been given a safety check and is ready for your enjoyment. The radio performs very well picking up stations across the dial with ease and producing good audio. The radio is very unusual measuring only 10 inches tall ,7 inches wide and 5 inches deep thus the name Mini Tombstone. This radio is from my personal collection and you will not be disappointed.
