Vintage Knight Suit of Armor - Made In Japan Transistor Radio Medieval 1960. This is a fine example of 1960s Japanese electronics, made for the American market, novelty wares. The woman who owned this kept a neat, tidy house.
She must have dusted because this is clean. She must not have had children because it appears to have been put on a shelf and left alone since the 60s except to maybe dust it. This radio is in beautiful condition.No cracks, chips, scratches, marks, or any anomalies, that I can see. It measures 11.5x6.5x4.25 inches. This transistor radio has all its parts and pieces. The mask turns up and down and is made of still shiny, scratch free brass. It holds in whatever position you set it at.
The sword actually pulls out of the knights hands quite easily. It is shiny and bright chrome and has red, enameled stripes that are also clean and scratch free. It is also quite clean and scratch free.It has a small brass platen the front. I assume you could engrave it to say whatever you like because it is blank and not inscribed. On one side is the volume and on/off switch. On the other side is the tuner. It requires a 9 volt square style battery.
It didnt have a battery installed, which can sometimes corrode the components if left connected. The wires and terminals are clean. I connected a battery and turned it on. It was a little squelchy until I reached a local station. It came in loud and clear.
The speaker is working and the volume turned up and down. I removed the battery and that is how it will arrive to you.
The bottom has 4 pads that keep it about a quarter inch off the surface. They are all 4 in great condition.
I have researched other radios like this one. They all seem to have some sort of issue or another. Some are missing pieces, none available have the sword. None have faired as well as this one. If you want one of these, in my opinion, you will not find a better example.This radio withstood the test of around 50 years time and that is how it will arrive to you. I will, ever so carefully, pack and pad this in order to insure, to the best of my abilities, that it arrives to you in the same great shape that it leaves here in. Thank you for your consideration.
