We had a big Zenith console radio when I was little. I saw the exact same model in the corporate headquarters of Zenith in Illinois once. I asked a Zenith guy in the lobby how much it was worth, and he said several thousand. Between that and the fact that my mother threw out my 1954 baseball card collection after I left, I have a lot to regret. Hope you enjoy your new box!
I had it appraised in 2006 at $5,500.00, sadly it has gone down since then and the curves have had some cracking in the clear but it displays beautifully and I'm going to miss is very much. My wife is calling me crazy for selling it since I sold my previous one as well.We'll see, the purchase this sale has allowed me to make I think is worth it, time will tell. Plus, the person who bought it I think will take very good care of it and will hand it down to his children. I'm hoping this radio gets another 78 years and keeps getting handed down, how awesome would that be!
