Product Description

This Standard Radio Corp. SR-H437 Brown Imperial Micronic Ruby 1965 Vintage AM Radio, is in excellent condition. I have not been able to test this radio as I have no batteries for it. There does not appear to be any damage inside from leaky batteries. (Batteries are not included)This set was powered by a pair of Eveready E640 mercury-oxide batteries. Those batteries were outlawed for environmental reasons, but you can get modern equivalents from suppliers such as Telecom Electric Supply. This jewel-like miniature transistor radio was made in 1965 and uses eight transistors. It measures only about two inches square! It is amazing that an eight-transistor radio could be packed inside such a small package. Like other Micronic Ruby models, this one has a little carrying strap and a stainless chain with a round medallion at the end. The round power/volume and tuning controls are located on the right of the tiny cabinet. On the left side are openings for an earphone and an external antenna. Standard made a few different Micronic Ruby models in the 1960s. They are all quite collectible, but this is the most attractive of the bunch, in my view. I believe it was also the last of the series. Depending on which collector guide you look at, this model is valued at about $175.
