Condition: very good, playing with a piece of wire as antenna after I changed all caps (by filling the old glass tubes with new capacitors and sealing the original glass/pertinax tubes with tar) I'm still looking for the backside cardboard and good knobs without cracks. The procedure of restoring these nasty capacitors see another one of my projects: Restoration of Volksempfänger

Comments: nickname "Herr im Frack" means "gentleman in tails"
