  • 61F 18th Century
    The models 50 with cabinet Modern and 51 with the cabinet 18th Century have chassis from the 300 series but less the changer and show a smaller cabinet. They were made for three seasons only as 50D Modern, 50E Modern and 50F modern, 51D 18th Century, 51E 18th Century and 51F 18th Century.
    The same is 60-D, 60-E and 60-F with cabinet modern.
    Also models 60 Modern and 61 18th Century were made without changers, for season 1935/36 as 60-D and 61-D (for $ 495), for season 1936/37 as 60-E and 61-E and for season F but all with the bigger chassis series 400. To all of those one could add the conceiled Record Changer model 160.
    Chassis Series 400-F for LW, broadcast and two SW bands:
    Tuner with the following 12 tubes: 6K7, 6K7, 6L7, 6K7, 6G5, 6K7, 6H6, 6K7, 6H6, 6J7, 6C5, 5Z4 - according to Rider's 8; Bass Amplifier with 6N7G, 2 x 6C5G, 6F6G, 2 x 6L6G and 83 (25 watts, driving the 18 inch speaker, schematic N-920) and a Treble Amplifier (schematic N-919) with 6F6G, 2 x 6L6G and 5Z3. See also the rare model 500-FR which has on top of that "Middle Register Amplifier" with the same tubes as the "treble amplifier".
    The Capehart 400 series were introduced for season 1931/32 without suffix, followed by A 1932/33, B 1933/34 etc. through to season 1948-50. See here the "Common information for the Capehart model pages for the 1930s and 1940s".
