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.
