If you grew up in the 1950's or 1960's you probably owned a transistor radio. Pictured for sale is a Star-lite 10 Transistor Leather Cabinet Radio Stardust. Model No. GK-615 made in the early 1960's. The radio is made in Japan and imported to the United States by the Star-lite Electronics Corporation of New York, N.Y. The radio comes in its original box with a battery case which still holds a vintage Ray-O-Vac 9 Volt battery and an earplug in its plastic case.
**Condition of the original box and radio. The box is in very good condition, very clean and bright. The carrying strap and the Genuine Top Grain Cowhide Leather are in good condition, very clean and bright. The leather battery case is in very good condition, very clean and bright. The earplug and plastic case are both in very good condition. *Box: There is surface wear and corner wear to the box. *Leather: The radio is covered with leather. The stitching on the bottom of the radio is worn as are the edges on the bottom. The remaining stitching is solid and there is some residue from tape that had been on the back and bottom of the radio.
The radio works great and can pick up stations outside better than in the house. The original model label is still found on the inside of the battery compartment flap. The on/off switch works great. The dial tuner is solid and works great.
The box measures 7 1/2" long x 4 1/4" wide x 2 1/2" high. The radio measures 5" wide x 1 1/2" thick x 3 1/4" high. Overall the box and the condition of the radio will make any person that collects vintage Transistor Radios very happy.
If you were a little boy growing up in the 1950's or 1960's you probably remember listening to the World Series in school with the earplug secretly hidden in your ear. We took our transistor radios everywhere and listened to rock n' roll music. Our parents thought that music would turn us into juvenile delinquents.
A fantastic gift to give your parent or grandparent who owned one and who could very well tell you some great childhood stories about all the fun times a simple little radio brought them.
