The radio is in original, untouched condition, with a beautiful and natural gloss and is just a superb example of this General Television radio.  Cabinet is in perfect condition with no cracks, chips, repairs or tube burns.  The ivory polystyrene trim is complete and original to the radio and has no cracks, chips, burns or repairs. The gold dial is original and in great condition. The dial plastic is also original and in great condition. Radio retains its original cardboard back and manufacturer's label affixed to the chassis designating it as a model 591.

This set is sold "as-is + untested", the chassis seems complete, original cord is cracked and should be replaced.  Set is being sold as a "non-working" vintage electronic device that should be gone over by a qualified technician.
