Vintage **RARE** TINICO 'Spy' Tape Recorder w/ Amp Mic

Up for auction is this.......... RARE, VINTAGE , TINICO mini spy Tape Recorder/Playerfrom Japan , and accompanying Mic-Speaker Model MP-41A. I inherited this from my grandfather around 1970 +/- but I haven't the need to hang on to it. I have checked this out thoroughly, and everything works fine. Drive mechanism runs in all functions, and records & plays back fine. Cosmetically it is in good condition given it’s age, with some scuffs on the black plastic case. The mic-speaker has some ‘melt’ marks on the plastic case, but in generally good shape. The ‘on/off’ switch on the mic-speaker is missing, but the switch is functional from the back of the unit. (Batteries were for testing purposes and not included in this auction...you will need fresh batteries.)....... .. NOTE : THIS IS PROBABLY WORTH MORE, BUT NEED THE MONEY , so ALL Offers WILL BE seriously Considered!
