On the Bench: The new blonde Philco Predicta!

I just got back from a small group meetup of early TV enthusiasts at a fellow collector’s house in San Jose. Among the featured sets were a pair of pre-WWII 5″ television receivers (VERY rare) and one modern replica of a “color wheel” b&w to color converter. Too cool!

I picked up this blonde Predicta TV. The cabinet is in excellent shape. it’s missing all of the front knobs; however, the GOOD news is that I have three of the four in my knob stash. The junk on the face of the screen is a stinky film that appears as a result of the decomposition of the plastic. Should clean up nice!
