Hank van Cleef reminds us that antique
stores often have a few old radios and telephones, for atmosphere
if nothing else. Don't expect any bargains, for the most part. These
dealers are in business to make money. They typically price radios
at or above the book values given in the collector guides. And since
the dealer is not necessarily knowledgeable about electronics, the
set is usually offered 'as is', without any form of guarantee.
