I was at a flea market today and I found this antique radio. The vendor bought it from the estate of the family. It came with a box of paperwork including the original receipt, manual, operator licence, and payment receipts. The owner bought it for $200 in 1928 and paid $15 down and $10 a month at 7% interest. The radio came with a Baldwin speaker (model 35).
It’s very clean Inside. The last service receipt was 1936 for $50. I had to replace the speaker cable but it powered on and worked. From the cottage north of Peterborough I managed to bring in 640 and 680 AM from Toronto.
Standard Radio model 420

I think that is a good find. Everything looks original.
It is a keeper for sure.

I purchased four NOS type 32 tubes to replace the original Rogers AC type 32 tubes in this model 420. The original tubes work but I’m told the original Rogers tubes are hard to find and should be put away. The issue I have….the new tubes only have a single post on the top instead of two like the old tubes. Is there a way to wire these in or are they just not compatible?
