    I picked this up at an estate sale and know its an Eaton, but don’t know what era or it’s value. Thanks for any help, Barry

    It’s hard to read the info on the paper tag. Is the model RMK 721?

  • As to value, I’d say that it depends very much on who wanted it. Probably of little value to someone wanting a truly “vintage” radio; but (I understand from flea market dealers) of higher value to today’s typical flea market purchaser. At a guess: $25 – $40, or whatever you paid for it. 🙂

Thanks for the quick response…. yes that’s the model #. Thanks for the valuation too. I picked it up for $10.00US so I guess I did ok. Any idea of its age? Thanks again

The service sheet for the RMK 721 is dated Jan, 1965, so it probably came out at that time or the previous year (just a guess.)

I suspect you did fine regarding the purchase price. Is it and the clock working okay? One dealer I talked to a couple of years ago said he couldn’t sell anything that didn’t do something more than just be a radio, as the space people had for objects in their living area was so limited. He said that he had more success with clock radios than just plain radios. People still liked to have them for alarms, etc.

Yes, the radio and the clock both work great. Maybe I’ll have some luck with it then. Thanks once more for all the great info.

You’re welcome. (Now you can try to find the same models in other colours and get the collection started. 🙂

Best,
