model 61R48

Made in USA and stamped on December 22 1961. This is really a strangely constructed radio, it has a very uncommon battery compartiment. It plays average, but seems not to be able to match other radios from that era. Construction of the case with leather back is also uncommon. 7 early transistors do the job in this one. Supply 6 V by 4 AA cells.
