Philco Model 39-70 "Tombstone" battery operated farm radio.

Broadcast **and shortwave. (Thanks to our loyal readers:)


This radio does not have shortwave. The scale on the bottom is the AM band in meters of wavelength. Many stations in the 20ís and 30ís used to identify using wavelength rather than frequency. When the change was made to use frequency, radios were made with both scales like this one. The wavelength scale largely went away after the war.

This one has a chip in the wood case, but looks good and works great.
