EH Scott Radio Enthusiasts

The Fine Things are Always Hand Made

As most of you know, I've been gathering and analyzing Scott serial numbers for over 20 years. I have a couple requests....first, if you haven't sent me your serial numbers, please do. Also...if any of you have a confirmed date for a set/serial number, please send me that. There is a warranty tag on ebay at the moment, these are great, since they have the date and serial number on them. A letter with a date is also good confirmation. I would greatly appreciate any info you fellows can provide. I'll post more about serial numbers here in the future.

Kent,

I was at the New England Wireless and Steam Museum in East Greenwich, RI yesterday. They have on display a Scott AW 23 (7 knob). I don't know if you have that serial number. But here it is - P-524. It is in VERY unrestored condition. I have attached some poor photos.

Thanks, I did not have that one. That set is rough but restorable.

Hi Kent,

Thank you for your extensive work on recording the serial numbers!

I came upon my 1st Scott last September and am slowly working to restore it to operating condition.  The serial number is BB-73.

What can you tell me about my radio.  It is a Philharmonic.  Thanks!

Thanks for that number, it is a new one for the DB. I can give you a pretty good estimate on a production date: Q3 1937, probably earlier in the quarter...based on a couple other serial numbers in that prefix. It is most definitely a 1937 set.

Regarding the New England Wireless and Steam Museum, I am a volunteer there. Most of the volunteers are of the steam persuasion. I and a few others are radio guys. We are in the process of building a radio repair workshop. Once that is done we hope to resurrect a number of radios . I will push to get a Scott going.

I must apologize for not even thinking about getting serial numbers for Scotts. Fran’s post is a wakeup call.

I just completed a complete inventory of all items in the Massie Wireless Point Judith station (original building dating back to about 1905). No Scotts in there. I had to learn about a whole different method of wireless communication.

There are other Scotts. I will let Kent know as I make more discoveries.

Thanks, Kent!  That's helpful info.  Scott

Speaking of new, or possibly new, finds of E-H Scott Serial Numbers, there is an Allwave 23 in a Tasman Cabinet currently (as of 7 December 2019) on sale on eBay, from a seller based in Maryland, near Baltimore. I asked him to please take a close-up photo of this set's serial number, which he agreed to do, and he sent me this photo:E-H%20Scott%20Allwave%2023%20Serial%20Number%20B-652%20from%20eBay%....   The Serial Number for this set is B-652.

Here, also, is the eBay Listing for this radio: https://www.ebay.com/itm/223694122437?ul_noapp=true

The seller claims this set has been "professionally restored" - but when I pressed him to let me know more about how and who 'restored' it, I got no response.  It's unlikely much has been done to this set. Interestingly enough, after I pressed him on who restored this set, he removed the original listing he had for it, and re-listed it (as you see in the link above). He now no longer claims it was "professionally restored."

The seller in this instance appears to be someone who sells odds and ends of varying descriptions, and happened to come across this radio, which IS an unusual find. However, I doubt very much that this seller knows very much about radios, per se, if anything (I might be greatly mistaken, however).

Since I wrote him asking who restored it, I received no response, and he subsequently re-listed this item, as you see it in the link above. (No more reference to having had it 'professionally' restored.

I apologize for double-posting my comment - I'm still learning how to use the 'EDIT' feature on these pages.

Hey Kent, 

Here is a new one posted on Ebay.  K-533  Asking 2 93889759Thousand.  Very Clean.  Item # 303393889759  Not the seller.  Just a really nice Scott

Mark & others...thanks. I had a couple of them already, and I always appreciate to pointers.

I have a pointer dial Philharmonic with serial number E-760. My great grandfather - who I am named after - ordered it new from the factory. The set is all original and has never been restored (pics posted) - it sat in the same spot in the same house it was delivered to until 2008, when I inherited it and moved to my house. I've never plugged it in, knowing it surely needs to be recapped first. I have a letter from the company, addressed to my great grandfather,  that accompanied an ordered part - which is pretty neat. 

I would love to learn more about this set from an expert perspective. How common was this set, etc. I have a small collection of 20's/30's Philco and Zenith consoles and tombstones, and also restore cabinets when I find a good candidate, but know very few specifics on the Scott models.

Hope the serial number is helpful. Thanks
