The photos presented by Ignacio Rodriguez-Rodriguez show the correct cabinet for a model 456, however, the chassis photos are not correct for that model.  I have not been  able to identify the chassis in the photo as of yet.  I believe that the chassis has been significantly modified from the factory build. The big difference is that this photo shows a 2 section tuning condenser, wheras, the models which I have that utilize this dial / knob arrangement all utilize a 3 section tuning condenser.  this knob arrangement was used on 1935 and 1936 sets with 6 and 7 tube complement.  There were very few sets that matched the knob arrangement with a 5 tube complement, but the ones I have still use the 3 section condenser, such as the model 735.  (Note; the last digit of the Atwater Kent model number represents the quantity of tubes used) It's not likely that someone would change out a 3 section condenser circuit to a 2 section condenser circuit.  Although I haven't been able to identify the chassis photographed by Ignacio, I'm positive that it's not the model 456 chassis.  Also, compare the two chassis in the model 456 page, the other chassis is correct.  I would like to know what model that Ignacio's photo is of so I could put it into my Atwater Kent notes.  I will entertain any discussion on the photo in the model.  Regards, Dennis Craft
