This Patterson PR-15, is a 1937 Communication Receiver, and is in in Collector Quality Condition. This beautiful Receiver has the original finish and paint and does not appear to be repainted. It is stunning how clean it is inside and out. I did power it up with a variac and all the (glass) tubes light up and the transformer appears to be okay. It does not receive signals and there is no noise in the headphone jack so it will need some attention. Most of the components are original and a few of the capacitors have been changed over the years but for the most part it is all original with no extra holes or modifications. I also have the original paperwork that was with the receiver when it was sold new. This is a Very rare find and to find one in this condition is really rare indeed. I am selling this pre war 1937 receiver as is as described. This radio will be packed and double boxed. I have been packing and shipping this type of vintage gear for over 25 years and am one of the best in the business packing and shipping heavy and vintage radio gear.
