Maritime Crystal Radio Receiver

An unusual crystal radio. I'm not sure of the date, some indicate this was an emergency receiver used on ships during WW-II. Judging from the construction I would guess it was made in the 1930s. Heavy construction, case and panel made of steel.

Excellent condition and it works, although the frequency coverage indicates; 530 - 550 K.C., I was able to tune in a station in my area of 1550 loud and clear!

The log chart is my reproduction and I do have its original but it is so dark and faded with age that it's nearly impossible to read most of it. Other than the paper chart, as near as I can tell, it's all original.

measures: 9.5 x 6.5 x 2.5"
