"Wow, thanks for the cabinet scan, Gerry.  I like those barley twist legs on the Gothic! I did a search of Radio News on americanradiohistory.com.  I found the Masterpiece was advertised in 10 issues from January to October, 1933.…"

"I do have a chrome set. I have taken pictures years ago. Will search thru files. I'm not sure but I may have sent them to him years ago. How may I contact him, or he may contact me here, or at my email?"

"Only 10 - 15 original brass or chromed Masterpiece (1) sets are known to have turned up. If you have 1 of these please share info and photos of it. Jerry Steffens is the MS guru similar to how Kent is for Scott radios"

"The Masterpiece (1) was intro'ed in 1932 as a 1933 model. I will try and take photos of the MS cabinets from the Blue Book he used as his advertising piece with ink drawings and descriptions of his cabinets. There were 4 or 5 offered"

Y2K Bruce replied to Bill Busetti's discussion McMurdo Masterpiece "1" the first of the series.
"2 versions, a brass plated then a chromed one. Very few MP '1' sets are known to have survived. Cabinets were made by Rockford Peerless and were same as offered by EH Scott the same year but with different names."
