This looks like a Setchell Carlson, but I can't find anything quite like it.
Think it's worth the price?

I've had one similar, but made for hospitals. Same dial. Mine was a
Dahlberg, but I believe you are right about the Setchell-Carlson lineage.

I suspect people buy radios like that because of the case, not the innards.

That's what I did with my first wife.

It's a Setchell Carlson, made a couple miles from where I sit. I've
been in the building.
They made radios for Dahlberg as well.

It's fairly rare to find one that's not cracked between the dial and
one or both of the controls.

I wouldn't pay $95 for it, but I suspect there are folks who will.
