1921 Clapp Eastham Radion Loose Coupler Crystal Radio W/fada Detector For Sale

1921 Clapp Eastham Radion Loose Coupler Crystal Radio W/fada Detector


Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I've got another great group of listings running this week, and I suspect there will be something of interest to almost everyone. Here's a Clapp Eastham Radion loose coupler crystal radio. The radio -- built ca. 1921 entirely with factory parts -- features a Murdock headphone condenser, a Fada detector (with a triple cup galena holder) and a Merit detector arm. Included with the receiver is a pair of American Bell headphones (they're good). Condition of the radio is excellent throughout, as you can see in the photos. The rubber foot under the left front rail has been replaced, but everything else on the set is pretty much the same as it was when the radio was first assembled almost a century ago. The black wrap on the loose coupler's sliding coil is original and in excellent condition. The binding posts and binding post nuts are all original and in excellent condition. All small hardware is original and in excellent condition. The paint on the rails is original and in excellent condition. Finish on the oak housing is original and in excellent condition. Detector arm moves easily, stays in place when it's released, and the glass housing is not cracked or otherwise damaged. This Radion is a wholly authentic 1918-1921 Clapp Eastham piece. It's worth nothing that more than 90% of the Radion loose couplers you see listed on and available for sale at radio meets are in fact replicas made in the 1990's. These fakes can be distinguished from the real thing by examining the hardware (which on the replicas is all new) and the oak cabinets (which on the replicas is cheaply veneered and finished with polyurethane rather than shellac). That these fake Radion sets have ID plates on them and this one does not means nothing. The tags, like the replicas themselves, were cheap knock-offs intended to deceive.Shipping weight will be approximately 9 lb. That's about it. Iwill package it 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.
