Cigarette Box Radio

Our Department and University.
See my other radios too! (Here is the next one.)

This little Peter Stuyvesant cigarette box is actually a radio in disguise; such radios are called `Novelty radios' and some collectors specialize in them. J.D. Adamson has quite a few, including a very similar one.

The radio is funny to look at (no, I don't smoke), but close to worthless in use; my other microradio is even smaller and plays a lot better.

Band: MW (530-1610 kHz approx).
Cabinet: White plastic, 56x83x24 mm. Weight is 120 grammes inc. battery.
Produced: Macau; circa 1970 perhaps??
Condition: Excellent (probably never used extensively); plays lousy though.
