Happy summer, everyone.

Here's a 1917 CN-113 receiver, a be...autiful and uncommon early radio manufactured for the US Navy by the National Electrical Supply Company (NESCO) in Washington DC. A marvel of miniaturization, the radio was designed to be used on submarines, where space was tight but high quality radio reception was critical. Although the radio measures just 17" x 7" x 6", it has almost all of the features found on a Marconi 106, but it's 70 percent smaller and a fraction of the weight.

Condition of this example is excellent throughout. The cabinet is original, and the chassis is clean, as you can see in the photographs.  The radio's small, tightly compacted, and electrically robust tuning mechanism is complete and original. The wiring is also original, with no re-wiring, no re-soldering, no repairs or modifications.  Coils are pristine, with no stains, no loose wire, no issues. 
Panel is excellent and undamaged, and the engraving is legible everywhere. Original knobs, original pointers, original buzzer and buzzer cover, original tap switch, original contacts.   All of the binding posts are original, and none of the binding post nuts are missing.

The cabinet finish is original, with scattered marks and nicks consistent with age and normal handling, but no signs of abuse or neglect. The original NESCO data plate is in excellent condition.

Shipping weight, properly packed, will be about 18 lb.  
That's about it. I will package the radio properly so that it arrives at your doorstep safely. I have been shipping antique phonographs and radios for years, and if you check my feedback, you'll see that I know how to do it correctly. Auction participants with no prior ebay feedback or with hidden feedback should contact me prior to placing a bid. Thanks.
