1917 Turney Wireless Receiving Set * Loose Coupler Crystal Radio Era * Near Mint For Sale

1917 Turney Wireless Receiving Set * Loose Coupler Crystal Radio Era * Near Mint

Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing five mechanical and technological antiques, and all in they're in near mint original condition.
Here's an ancient wireless receiving set consisting of a Eugene Turney Crystaloi Type AA Detector, a Eugene Turney Spiderweb Tuner and a pair of Wm. Murdock No. 56 headphones.
Based in Holmes, New York, Turney was a prolific inventor and accomplished musican whose wireless inventions were unlike any others being offered at the time. His Crystaloi detector (there were two versions of it; the AA seen in this set is the more expensive version, and the scarcer) featured a thumbwheel instead of a catwhisker, and his Spiderweb tuner, with coils embedded in adjustable flaps, is probably what gave Powel Crosley the idea to manufacture book condensers instead of multi-plate variable capacitors.
In the early 1920's Turney sold the rights to most of this wireless devices to the Connecticut Telephone & Electric Co. The Turney components included with this set, however, date to the late teens and were manufactured when Turney was still in control of his intellectual property.The Crystaloi Detector and Spiderweb Tuner are both in near mint original condition, and the tuner still has all of its original binding post nuts and screws, with no screw holes in the base. Wiring on the Crystaloi apparatus is still bright orange and almost like new. The Murdock headset has some fabric wear on the leads near the earpieces but is otherwise in excellent original condition. The drivers are good.
Shipping weight will be approximately 8 lb. That's about it. Iwill package everything carefully and properly, and Ican assure you thatit willshow upat your doorstepin the samefine condition in which it leaves mine. I have been shipping antique phonographs and radios for years, and if you check my response, you'll see that I know how to do it correctly. Overseas customers may remit payment with Paypal only. sale participants with no response history should contact me before placing a offer. Thanks.
