NOTES A typical boxy wooden radio of the late 1950's. Probably one of H.M.V.'s better efforts of the period, compared to the flimsey model 1372 and the uninspiring design od the model 1373. The same basic chassis is used in the Marconiphone T69DA but with a slight difference in the mechanics of the VHF tuner.
SERVICE
DATA
There was a copy of the service data on CD#1.
CURRENT
STATE
But for a couple of scratches on the top, in truely wonderful condition. The speaker cloth looks like the set has only just been taken out of its box !

Now sold to someone who was paricularly after one of these sets, complete with a second spares set that was £2 from a Radiophile auction.
WHERE
FOUND
£20 of mate Richard as part of a job lot. Despite the condition, I'm not sure that its true value is that high, but I bought it at the same time as the wonderful Belmont 746 for only a tenner, so I'm more than happy.

Sold to a luck punter at the BVWS's December 2002 Wotton Bassett bash.
