"Thank you very much for your reply and info.  I do recall that back in about 1976 while getting the set operating I was required to buy four 2A3 tubes . As I recall they were well over $ 200.00 at that time and I was required to wait for a…"

"Hi Rocco-No one has responded yet to your photos so I will. Your Scott is a circa 1935 AW23 set. Its the early version aka the 5 knob one. The later version had 2 more knobs but is functionally the same. The 4 output tubes on the amp should be…"

My 1931 (?) Scott radio set

Hello all. I'm a new member and I've owned my Scott for 45 years or so.  Not too sure exactly what model it is, so I'll post some pics.  Rumor was that it was originally owned by a rather shifty one legged semi-crook who was into boot-legging, after-hours gambling in Calgary Alberta in the 30's. Exactly how true this is I couldn't say. I do know it was ordered without a cabinet as a free standing set. I would very much like to have some idea what it is worth as I'm looking at down-sizing... and the wife is whining about my "junk"

Thanks in advance for any information any of you can provide.

Rocky

Hi Rocco-No one has responded yet to your photos so I will. Your Scott is a circa 1935 AW23 set. Its the early version aka the 5 knob one. The later version had 2 more knobs but is functionally the same. The 4 output tubes on the amp should be 2A3's and these are very expensive to buy. There may be a few single plate ones in your amp, its hard to tell in your photos. It would be more valuable if you have the original cabinet with the euscusions. If you have the Q4 tweeters those are selling by themselves for about $1200.
