Can anyone identify / appraise this radio ?

Model: 

I've had this radio laying around for ages and I see a similar one currently on ebay for $400+. I just hooked it up and it appears to work. The pits and crap on it are only very minor and would polish out easily. Note that mine has all the knobs that are the same as standard EH dash knobs. Can anyone identify it for me and maybe give a quick appraisal ? Wuld it be ebay worthy ?

Comments

Looks like a EJ/EH 13 transistor push button unit, it would be at the upper end of the market in it's day, as being ebay worthy then yes, I sold a full set of hand books for a EH & got over $400 bucks for a $10 investment. you only need to pollish it up,take a good photo & give a great description...Good luck!!

Well I gave it a tub and it came up pretty well. Most of the numbers on the plastic panel have disintegrated but there's only superficial chrome pitting and best of all it works ! I hooked up an aerial and a speaker and was rocking out to some great AM tracks. Might take some beter pics and Ebay it on the weekend.

But he needs more icons....and he can use animated gifs too.
I have seen new plastic dials for the radios. I have a new one for a non push button. circuit diags for older radios are here... http://203.44.53.131/ .

I have looked in the past to do a rotation service(electronic repair only) for these old radios for under the $100 mark if anyone is interested.

EH radio buttons are here(just joking)
