This was kept in a climate controlled home for its entire life. One photo shows a slight bit of rust, which could easily be cleaned off.. There is no visible evidence of any transformer issues, etc..
But I cannot say that the unit works, and I cannot test any of the tubes. The family says it was simply put out of service when a new set was bought in the 50's. Both do a great job and are reasonable. If you are an early TV collector, this is probably as good as you can find, condition wise. It really is sharp and clean.
