Emerson Model Bb-208


This radio is an Emerson model Bb-208 from 1938. The bakelite case is in excellent condition with the exception of a stabilized 1 inch hairline crack from the lower left corner of the dial opening to the volume control knob. This radio has been electronically restored to working condition by replacing all paper and electrolytic capacitors. All repairs have been done using vintage parts, by hiding modern parts inside the shells of the originals, or by using reproduction parts, thereby preserving the under-the-chassis appearance as well as the outward look.
