You got some handsome radios there, Jeff. I’m missing something. Which one is the Scott?

Front and back auction pics of the Scott radio Cath👍🏼
Scott’s thing was to have more tubes in their radios , to end up with higher quality sound over da other guys. The chroming of the working parts was more of a “bling “ thing back then, along with the Jedi mind trick of chrome must be a good thing for a better radio 🤔🥴. Some buyers back then ordered JUST the radio , sans any body to hold them,
along with collectors just getting the chassis and sometimes having a acrylic cover over it.
Some folks go while hawg and have any chrome parts redone 🤯,, if they are super crudded up.
This one does not look that bad, think I did ok with what I paid for it. Dropped out on another Scott radio in this auction( think there were 4 ) the price was a wee bit out of my comfort zone($2700). If I saw it in person, I might thought harder about following the bidding until I was the last one.


The below pic is of a 1936 price list for JUST the console bodies,, NOT the radio components 🥴😳.

The radio I dropped out of bidding on( go figger🙄🥴) happened to have the most expensive cabinet in ‘36 according to the list, $2500 ( in 1936 $$) The footnote says the radio in total was $5,000.00😳.
Have not done “what are 1936 dollars for stuff now in ‘22” , but a no brainer the average Joe was not buying these radios back when
