Hello, I have a 1938 scott radio, that I am trying to find a value on. It has one speaker at bottom, behind two doors. The left side top, pulls out, and is supposed to have a turntable in compartment. The right side top, has a door that you pull down, and push in so the radio comes out. it is an am/fm radio, with a green glass eye for tuning in stations. It has shortwave on it also. I will try to get photos of it posted, and the only number I found on it, was on the nameplate on back, and it was #1833, I think. any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

The radio you are describing is a Scott Model 800B available from 1946 through approximately 1951.  Unless equipped with rare options such as a wired remote control keyboard, remote operated volume control, optional deluxe speaker (Jensen HNP-51 or Stephens), or optional dynamic noise suppressor it is worth in the neighborhood of $400 in large cities and in the neighborhood of $200 elsewhere IF it has very good to excellent chrome and a cabinet in very good condition (including finish).  Add $100 to $200 for an original record changer depending on model.
