The gold dial is original and in great condition. Radio retains its original manufacturer's label affixed to the chassis designating it as a model 591, correct for the catalin case model.

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.
