Vintage Emerson Model 520 catalin radio that is great looking! The catalin body has great swirling all around and has been polished up lightly with Novus, which is made for polishing plastic and catalin. In the light the brown, light brown and hint of green in the catalin shows very well – this radio has exceptional coloring. The body has no chips or cracks and minimal scratches that are difficult to detect. In respect to its functionality, the radio is working – receiving stations readily, but with some background hum. The knobs turn smoothly and properly and the dial indicator functions properly as well. The power cord is in excellent condition. The dial cover is a bit loose and will need to be affixed better. Great catalin radio for the beginner or for someone who does not want to pay in the high end range. Do not hesitate to make an offer, all will be considered.
