Just purchased this beauty...  Can't read the model number, and I can't find anything like it in Radiomuseum's picture database.

Thanks!

I went through all 6 tube Troy models in the database, and none has the same set or configuration of tubes.  Undocumented model?

Tubes are 80, 76, 41, 6SF5, 6SK7, 6SA7.

Dear Guillermo
Thank you for asking. But I doubt that the tube layout is correct: 80 76 41 6SF5 6SK7 6SA7.
By the way: it is better to name the tubes beginning with the antenna and to place the magic eye on position 5.:

6SA8, 6SK7 75 41 6SF5 80

Now you also see better that the tube 76 can not fit since the superhet is missing a diode, therefore I placed a 75. This would be a "possible tube line up". If this is the error, please propose a Troy with the name "unkonwn" and add your pictures, beginning with the front picture. 

If possible please use size 1400 pixel width, cutting the first picture before a bit tighter to not having so much "noise" around it or take the picture with a "quiet surrounding".

But maybe you find in the sticker in the field "Model" anything detectable?

Cordially,
Ernest

Thanks Ernest.  I'm new to this, and have much to learn.  Now I know there's a proper way to ennumerate the tubes. :-)  The tube I mistook as a 76 has very faded lettering.

The label is pretty much illegible.  I took a photo and run some image enhancements on it (attached), and it looks like it might say something like M615.  The second number could be a 4 or a 7?

Thank you, Guillermo, I think M615 is a good guess. You are welcome!

Nice if you try your first proposal for a new model page. You might find hints in teh link FAQ, but actually it should be easy (in two steps).
