    The Model 51 is one of Crosley's oldest radio's. It was manufactured  in 1924. I have the original warranty card stapled to the top cover. It is in  mint condition and was purchased from another collector in 1973. We connected two "B" 45 volt cylinder Eveready batteries for plate voltage to the two UV 199 tubes, one "A" 6 volt for the filament and a Brandes Superior headphone to the set. We heard two stations (in Syracuse) AM 620 WHEN and AM 1390 WFBL. While tuning, the selectivity was poor but each 5 KW station was loud.

    The Zenith was purchased from a collector in Rhode Island. Electrolytic Caps, #47 tube, an open IF Transformer wire (causing no reception) and a few wires replaced. The radio was originally purchased at a radio dealer in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1938. The push button radio tab stickers have Boston, Providence and a few New York City AM stations. WBZ 1030, WCOP 1150, WMEX 1510, WRPO 630, WOR 710 and New York's WEAF 660. WEAF became WNBC and is currently WFAN. That shows how old this radio is! 1938.
