1924 Leutz Plio 6 Universal Radio W/original Coils, Manual & Harness * Works For Sale

Make sure to check out all of my sales after you've looked at this one. I'm listing an excellent assortment of mechanical, musical and technological antiques this week, and I suspect there will be something of interest to almost everyone.Here's a 1924 Plio 6 Universal Radio designed by Charles Leutz and manufactured by Golden Leutz, one of two spin-off companies created in the wake of several lawsuits launched against Leutz for patent infringement -- (the other spin-off was Norden Hauck). The radio is relatively uncommon and, like all Leutz sets, quite collectable.
The radio is in very good condition throughout, with its original parts and original plug-in RF coils, its original wiring harness, and six good 01A tubes. The original rectangular bypass capacitor has been replaced (actually augmented) with a smaller one (see photos), but the radio otherwise appears to be original and correct throughout. The cabinet has probably been refinished, but it's in good condition as you can see in the photographs. Included with the radio is the original owner's manual, which is worn but still intact, still readable, still overall in good condition.
(Plio 6 owners -- thank you in advance for not asking me to scan the manual for you -- it's too large for my scanning bed, and I don't want to risk damaging it. I will be listing another original Plio 6 manual later on , if you need one.)
As noted above, the radio still works. If you want to operate the set, you'll need a longwire outdoor antenna (ham radio type -- approximately 120 feet long and 20 feet off the ground), a good regulated DC power supply (I'd recommend and ARBEIII), and a good indoor ground connection. You'll also need to be familiar with the tuning principles of early 20's battery radios. The radio has reasonably loud audio output and can be used with just about any 1920's horn loudspeaker. That's about it. I will pack everything carefully and properly, and Ican assure you that it willshow upat your doorstepin the samefine condition in whichits 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.
