I used to have this radio. As I recall, I got it as a "quinquennial" gift from my company, selected from a catalog. I don't think it was all that rare, since it was in the catalog of a gift-fulfillment company. The vintage is early/mid 80's. I would guess the original cost was around $30-40, which was the general value of the gifts I had to choose from.

For several years it was our bathroom radio, it was OK, but nothing special. Small footprint and good battery life, which is why it wound up in the bathroom. It eventually stopped working on AM (which rendered it useless for morning bathroom duty), and at some point we got rid of it.
