1938, should have some collecter's value... If it does it would be a shame to tart it up as a daily driver.

I have only fired up the little guy. I had them recapped and NOS tubes bought from a guy that repairs pre WW2 radios for a living. Most of the tubes were fine, he only had to find me 3 replacements. Heavy heavy amps.

I used to leave the final output tubes out so no one could turn them on without a load and burn them up.

If anyone wants these I am entertaining offers. They are in GREAT shape. I just have them in climate controlled storage now that I have moved to a smaller place...

eBay would seem to be the natural venue for selling these. I have noticed a lot of ads for RCA cinema gear in particular in the back of Japanese MJ audio magazines. It might not be too unreasonable to require the ultimate buyer to arrange for crating and shipping.

As to what they are worth I have no idea, why not let the market decide? Set a reserve price at the minimum selling price you consider acceptable.

I looked at the pdf on the Oswald's Mill site, and these are definitely interesting amplifiers particularly for the era.
