ID request - 1940s Zenith AM/shortwave Bakelite tabletop
Someone from Bangkok, Thailand sent these photos, and asked how to identify the model. Can anyone ID the exact model, or explain how to ID it? It has an "A" on the left front side, but not sure if it was original. It appears to be from the 1940s, and has AM and shortwave.

This is the closest model I can find 6D815 The Zephyr Ch= 6E05. Your model is probably an export version of this. I don't see a rectifier tube at your radio, Does it have a selenium rectifier or was it modified later?
I only have the four photos that he provided (included in original post). No more data. Thanks for the link. I can try searching for Zenith Zephyr, etc. and see if that provides any more info.
Interesting that this one includes shortwave. You may be right that it was for export.
