Just picked this up. It was in pretty nice shape, needed a good cleaning and some re lettering. One sad point to the cleaning story was the life lesson   I got trying to clean some smoke off the main tuning dial with Windex (TM).. For about  2 seconds I wondered what all those little red and black specks on the cloth were from.  Then with horror I realized they were numbers lifting off of the dial. Through the generosity of another restorer I have located a replacement dial.
