::why on earth would you buy it not even knowing what the value is to know if you got a good deal or made a stupid purchase? unless it was a buck or two i would have done some research first. next time your looking for a wooden mystery box with some mystery components in them give me a call.

:In defense of Mr. Berg, I have from time to time bought vintage electrical equipment that I did not have a clue to what it was or what it did. In the process of restoration and research I had the opportunity to learn about related vintage equipment that led me to a better understanding of tube radios. I also ended up with an interesting and attractive related collection that many marvel at. Also, lets eliminate the name clling in this otherwise excellent forum.

I am with you, Jon. I have been to sales where I bought something for a low price and later found out it was a valuable piece of equipment.
