Zenith H-503 portable AM radio:
A Zenith H-503 luggable AM radio, circa 1952.  Looks better in the photo than it does in reality; I put some shoe polish on it (after the photo) to clean up the case a bit.  The metal work for the strap needs to be cleaned; I don’t know what to do about that bronze face yet (it’s either metal foil or some kind of treated paper).   Plays great, though.  And it’s got the elusive 1L6 tube, which is worth more than the rest of the radio parts combined.
