Zenith Model 5S220 -- Works!!
- Source: eBay
This old Zenith works amazingly well for a set manufactured in 1938. I'm not sure if any work has been performed in the past, but it picked up several stations loud and clear with just the short antenna on the back. I have enjoyed it for several years and really hate to sell it. My pup has blown out his CCL and it's going to set me back about $3500 to get him fixed up. So, I have to drum up some cash in a hurry. Otherwise this would certainly stay on the shelf.
BTW, I pack exceptionally well. I have shipped stereo equipment including turntables many, many times. I have seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Therefore, I have learned what it takes to arrive safely.
Thanks for looking!
Below a fellow eBayer noted that this is a 5s218, not a 5s220. There seems to be some factory labeling issues that are coming into play. Maybe even the production workders didn't know what model they were making at the time. If you look closely at the last photo, you can see a faint outline in big letters "218". But, you can also see the remnants of "220". Maybe it was labeled in error and another sticker was placed over the old one.
Just know it appears to be a 218, but was indeed labeled a 220 at one time.
