Was in town this morning and met a fellow while pumping dollars into my trucks gas tank when he mentioned that his grandfather had an old shed with a radio in it. Well, being me, I had to see what it was. Followed him home and was told this was mine as it was going into the dump. Its an old Silvertone, short wave receiver. No model, no nothing. Judging by the looks and tubes, I would say 1930's. No I have not plugged it in. Any one seen a receiver like this? A quick Google search shows nothing. Just another bookend "barn" find.

A little more research and found out this was made in 1939. Its a model #57PT. Mite consider this as a "next project" to toss onto the bench if I ever get time.
