Eddystone 870A Shortwave Receiver

Eddystone 870A Shortwave Receiver

Eddystone 870A Shortwave Receiver 150 Khz-24 Mhz in 5 Bands (Boxed)
 
Really nice condition Eddystone 870A Receiver, including original box. (See pictures for condition)
 
This really is beautiful. Even from the pictures you can see reflections from the paint. I'm very passionate about Eddystone receivers, and this is another looker. (See my other listing for the EC10)
 
I've not had to do anything to this one. It has had a mains supply rewired, but no holes have been drilled and the original socket is in the box, with the screws being used for the entry plate. I've checked it on all bands and it receives to within the manufactures specification. It isn't the hottest receiver, but it outstrips anything else for character. It has taken the place of my Hacker Herald in my office and it looks great. If I had more time I would have stripped the front and cleaned the inside glass, if I were to be critical.
 
Inside is absolutely mint. I was amazed i had to replace the two lamps. Almost looked like someone forgot to put them in !!
 
It also includes the original guarantee, and bill of sale from 25th January 1964. Although I suspect this in no longer valid !!
 
It is fairly heavy, but I am willing to post. However I will not accept returns due to broken glass, or damaged valves. The frequency readout is printed on the glass, and if it brakes, it would really upset me. What would upset me even more, is a message to tell me it has been broken. You have been warned. I would much prefer collection and depending on distance would meet. Trust me, if you prefer delivery it will be packed well, and double boxed. The original box is also double lined.
