Cosmetics of the all-original, unrestored wood cabinet are good overall, there's some small dings, rubs, scratches and a couple tiny veneer chips. The safety glass has separation in several places, be sure to look at all the pictures below.
The chassis appears to be mostly original with a few recent cap replacements and has all the tubes. I did not test the electronics or any of tubes except the the 10 10BP4A picture tube. Sencore CR70 picture tube test results: H-K Shorts - Good, G1 Shorts - Good, Cutoff - Bad/Low, Emissions - Good, Life Test - Good.
The important thing is the chassis is all there with no known missing electronic parts so it is valuable as a true antique or can be restored if desired. The picture tube may work perfectly or not at all. If you dont want to take a chance on it, that is fine with me. TV measures 23 1/2 wide, 19 1/2 deep 17 1/2 tall and weighs 85 lbs.
The picture tube will be packed in a separate box as when new. Feel free to check rates to your address.
Cabinet with chassis, 28 wide, 24 deep, 22 tall, weight 80 lb. Picture tube, 14 x 14 x 25, weight 15 lb.
