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.

Philharmonic in Warrington cabinet, beam of light, no log scale - RR-55.

There is an original manual, this serial number is written on it, but no dates are mentioned, unfortunately.


Hi Mal and others. 

I was able to pick up the new transformer for my allwave 23 from Heyboer on the 6th of Oct. It did take a while as I sent the original  to them in May. While it is an exact replacement electrically, there are some mechanical differences in the mounting. Cost was very reasonable for a one off custom part. Putting the power supply back together this week and will check out the tuner chassis next. Thanks for the recommendation of Heyboer.


You're very welcome.  I appreciate your update as I've been hoping to hear how it worked out.  Please keep us posted.


Hi Kent, just joined this group. I have a Phantom with SS-99 on the chassis, in a Braemar cabinet. I purchased it six years ago on eBay and have no history beyond that. Thanks for your work here, Ted
Kent, I just started a re-cap on my Phantom, S/N SS-99, and found some additional info. Rubber stamped on one end of the inside of the power supply chassis is the following: Mar. 6, 1942, Sulivan Radio Electric, 13 So. Tracy, ---eman, Montana, probably Bozeman but it's smudged. Also in permenant marker is PP-325 written freehand on the inside of the rear panel. There is nothing other than the serial number on the main chassis. Speaker is an E.H. Scott, but with a Magnavox cover on the cable terminal strip. Found newer caps inside both chassis, from several replacements years apart. Hope this helps some, Ted

Hi Kent:

 I am new to the list and have just aquired an Allwave 23 in a Waverly Grande cabinet. The serial number is U-455. I bought it in Calgary Alberta Canada and sadly have no history or paper work with it.



Hi- I'm a new member here and just recently acquired what I believe to be an all wave 15 in a tasman cabinet.

Serial number is L-407. It has a tone control on the back of the receiver chassis if that helps date it any.

HI Rob:

 I am new to the list as well and know little about Scott radios but welcome and please put a picture up so we can have a look see.


OK, here's the serial number for my Philharmonic pointer dial in a Gothic Grande cabinet: AA53...

I posted earlier that the Serial # on my Philharmonic Pointer Dial was AA53. There's one for sale on eBay now with Serial No. AA59 -- just six higher than mine!

I just looked at my recently acquired Dial pointer set and its serial number is AA-214. In the Warrington cabinet now.


I was wondering if the same assembler used the single letter such as A and ran the serial numbers up to A-999, then this same person went to AA-001 up to 999 and after that went to the next available letter not already taken. Just my theory.

Actaully, I'm pretty sure anymore that the prefix was not associated with an individual, for a variety of reasons. And there are other problems with this particular theory. Note that only a few of the earliest Philharmonic sets had D, E or F prefixes. No other single letter prefixes had Philharmonic production. In fact, I think that we can make a good case that Scott began using the double letter prefixes on 1/1/38, or very close to that date. The number of Philly sets extant in the 3 prefixes matches very closely with expected production from April to Dec, 1937. Also, we have no serial numbers up in the 900 range, most of the series trickle out somewhere in the 600-800 range (varies by prefix). The same is true for the double letter codes. Also, it appears that each series started at 10, as we have no examples of any AW12 sets with serial numbers like G-5...the lowest examples are all 10 or higher.


BTW Bruce, I know from my personal records that I once had AA-214 in my collection...I do occasionally sell or trade a chassis for something else I want....
