    Looks like a 1935 Rogers model 1065

    Thanks Tony, I finally did figure it out although the one I am, getting has no legs,
    so I guess someone cut them off. It also has a output tube 6H7M and I hope it is good.
    I am told that Rogers only made this tube for a few years.

    This radio is a 10-65 with a bad 6H7M tube.
    I have a 6H7 tube that is spray shielded with a silver coating.
    I tested it with an adapter and it tests good.
    After bringing up the radio with a variac it works, but it will need a recap.
    I consider myself lucky because I find that the tube is VERY hard to get ,
    and to replace it you have to rewire in another tube

    I also had to redo the tuning drum and it has wire instead of string.
    About a year ago I bought some of this radio wire at an estate sale so it worked fine.
    The challenge was that the drum is the same as a 10-12 with four bands and this radio only has three bands.
    I had to test the transformer and a few things before I brought it up on a variac . It did work so I could find out where the BC band was in order to set up the drum correctly.
    Every time I go to an estate sale I look for anything that I might use for radio repair and this time it worked out very well.
