RCA Berkshire For Sale

I have decided I need to downsize and part with my original working RCA Berkshire. The cabinet is in an optional light finish which is extra rare. The radio has been electrically restored by a noted forum member and I was able to locate and will include an original RCA 45 RPM record player in the same finish and in restored playing condition.Also included are original dealer sales books and brochures and misc. The 25 inch projection TV is all complete but not restored. I have also spare parts…See More

"A GREAT find especially with all 3 components. The tuner used a lot of pot metal and almost all of the 10 or less known sets have broken tuners. I especially like the very nice colored dial plastic piece and the original bezel."

Re-acquired Scott Philly in a early 1930's Capehart 300 cabinet

I re-acquired this wonderful Scott Philly AM/FM BOL in a nice huge 1932 circa 1st year Capehart 300 cabinet. I had sold this radio a few years ago to a big dog private collector over in Davenport Iowa. The history of this set goes back to Norman finding this in a habitat for humanity shop in the Denver area. The shop had asked Norman for an approximate value for them to sell it at. After Norman posted about it here on this forum I ended up buying it and had it shipped via craters and Freighters…See More

Did you mean the Tasman with the 16 ? That's the one I was inquiring about vs the Tasman you have with the Philly in it size wise/

Hello Bruce,...the Scott 16 in the Warrington cabinet is in an Imperial (AW/23) sized cabinet. I don't know why this is, as this little chassis would surely fit in an Allwave 15 sized cabinet easily.

Thanks Bruce for your comments,....at some point i'll have to get the Scotts organized and on display properly. I have sets in my garage that need to be brought out and displayed and admired like they should be as well. I really like your 16 in the Warrington cabinet.

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 sufficient (months) period until the manufacturer had a sufficiently sized order before he would produce them.  Actually the set hasn't been turned on since that time. I was reasonably young and footloose at the time so I loaned the set to a local technical museum where it sat on display, for 10-15 years. It was probably the best thing I could have done or I would have likely lost it.

Do you have any idea what the set is worth?

I really think your collection is becoming superior. I only wish I had such a nice set up.

Hi Bruce,

Thanks for the welcome. I am looking forward to being a menber of the group. I do not have any unique or rare Scotts but do have several from an AW12 two dial to Philharmonics.

Best regards,
Rich
