Right after I received this month's magazine, I received an email from Steve, W9DX, telling me I missed another Silvertone which just sold on Ebay. Here are the pictures and the item description...

EBAY: Just found is an old Old Silvertone Tube Shortwave Radio and original speaker. This is a large unit with lots of knobs and switches. The front has "Silvertone Precision" on it. The glass is excellant. The dials do move. The back is stamped Sears and Robuck serial # 7244 and model 5711-A. Please understand this unit has NOT been tested, therefore will be sold as untested AS-IS. We did a cleanout and have other tube stuff up for sale. US only.
Winning bid: US $288.99
