This vintage “1930 Model 60 Jackson Bell ‘Sunburst’ Cathedral” I was told is a fairly rare seven-tube radio.
The insides is rather dusty but it all seems very solid, and has the original finish but does have a few surface scratches. The cord/plug is original, but was told that it may need to be replace. Considering it is 87 years old, it is in really good condition. The few unrestored Model 60s I have seen online were not in this good of condition.
I was also told by numerous ‘antique radio enthusiasts’ who restore vintage radios to NOT to plug it in due to the possibility of damaging it. It needs to be gone through to make sure it is good working order before plugging it in. Something I am not able to do.
It does have an original schematic on the radio, but it is so small it may be hard to see, but do have a pdf of the schematics which I can send you after purchase.
This radio has been in the family since new. My grandfather was very meticulous with the care of everything he owned, so it is possible that not much will need to be done to it for it to work.
This is a fairly heavy radio at approximately 25 lbs and it measures approximately 16"H x 14"W x 10"D.

I am not a professional seller... this is an online estate sale. I am going through 3 generations of belongings including my own and need to downsize due to health issues. I am doing the best I can with describing each item as thoroughly as possible. I am willing to 'consider' any reasonable offers, especially if you want more than a few items.
If I have misidentify something or you know the price is too high or too low, please do not hesitate to contact me and let me know. I would truly appreciate any help with identifications and values.
