Snip...yep it was made in 1918 ...
Just waiting for KDKA's first broadcast a few years later...
and even before the battery sets were made.

Looks like an Earl Scheib paint job. "I'll paint any radio for $5.95!"

Thing about that price at Earl Sheib.. you better mask off anything you
don't want painted (like your windshield and bumpers!) or you'll get your
car back as one big color.. :)

I notice that it is now only $75; such a deal!  And, although the color
is a bit unusual, the lettering seems to be nicely done.

What is so obnoxious about this ad is that the advertiser is more than
deluded -- he seems to be an outright liar.

He's convinced the radio is rare and a bone fide value at $375 -- but he can't
properly date it. He apparently didn't even bother to Google "Philco
Transitone" to get background on this radio.
