I am thinning a high quality Zenith collection. This one is an excellent, totally original '38 Zenith 12-S-266 12 tube console. All original to include, the finish, knobs, grille cloth, "Zenith" branded "ST" type tubes. It also has a working 6T5 tuning eye tube that is rare in its own right. Its chassis is clean and rust free. It plays picking up stations on all three bands using a short piece of wire as an antenna. It does, however, have a moderate AC hum indicating the need for filter cap replacement. All function switches work well, the "Robot Dial" mechanism works smoothly, the motor drive tuning works as well. The dial drive tuning belt slips in some areas of the dial. The cabinet has some light scattered marks as expected for its age, no missing veneer or bad damage. This was one of the more expensive 12 tube models in the 1938 Zenith line and as a result it is less common to find today. It is for pick up only and I will make no attempt to pack it for shipping but will be available make it accessible if you contract a local packer/shipper. I will however safely store it for a reasonable amount of time until arrangements for pick up can be made. Continenal U.S. offerding only.
