You would think with a starting bid of almost $50K, the seller would take crisp, hi-res photos and note the veneer (leather?) is bubbling on the back.
I have (somewhere) a photo of a similar executive-class Panasonic shortwave receiver that belongs to my buddy, Dan Robinson. I got to play with it once at the Winter SWL Fest. The tuning was weighted and silky smooth. The audio fidelity from the built-in speaker system--simply phenomenal and unparalleled. Room-filling audio with full dynamic range. It was in excellent condition and I believe he said he paid $5K for it in 2011.

I have one of these. They're good. They were sold under several different brands, including Aircastle and Allied----and I think at least one other.

My ASTRONAUT 6 from 1972 is still going strong! I will sell it at the low low price of only $35,000, a savings of fifteen thousand dollars, but that's not all: you will get four "D" batteries FREEEEE! The more you buy, the more you save.
