Excellent, Working 1921 Rca Aeriola Sr. Radio W/tipped Wd11, Ux-99 & Adapter


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 1921 Aeriola Sr. regenerative radio. The set is original, it's working, it's in excellent condition (including the original lid sheet), and it comes with 2 tubes: a good bakelite base UX-99 tube with an adapter for use when operating the radio, and a brass base, tipped WD-11 Radiotron tube for use when displaying the radio (the BBT tube is non-working).Launched by Westinghouse in 1921, the Aeriola Sr. underwent only a few changes over the course of its 2 1/2 year production history, the most significant of which came in the wake of RCA/Westinghouse's decision in 1922 to change the composition of the panel from painted wood to polished bakelite. The example I'm listing this week is the earliest version, with a painted panel, silver-plated dials, a poplar cabinet and a large brass base, tipped RCA Radiotron (later versions were sold with smaller bakelite base WD-11 tubes). As you can see in the photos, the condition of this radio is excellent throughout. The panel is beautiful and undamaged, with clean original paint that's still glossy and smooth to the touch. Original silver plating on the dials has very little tarnish, much less than you typically find on these early sets, whose dials are either black and illegible or completely re-plated. The binding posts, the panel screws, the screws securing the parts on the underside of the panel to the wood top -- all of this hardware is still clean. Inside, the chassis has straight, original wiring throughout and the original fuse-type grid cartridge still in place. The early poplar cabinet is in nice condition, and the finish is original. There are minor marks on all sides consistent with the finish's age and authenticity, but there is no damage or distress anywhere. The cabinet hardware is clean, with tarnish, but no rust or corrosion. All four original feet remain intact on the underside of the base. The lid instruction sheet is original and it's in excellent condition.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. The flex-wires on the tuning and tickling units are a bit "spring-y," so you'll need to be patient as you set them in place on their respective dials, but once they're set, they'll stay set, and the radio will work, producing undistorted output for near and distant stations. As noted above, the radio comes with a good UX-99 tube and an adapter, so if you're familiar tuning principles of an early 20's regenerative radio, and you have the proper antenna erected, a working pair of 1920's headphones, and the proper DC power supply, you'll be able to use it as soon as it arrives. 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.
