Notes For the 655 Olympia models and the Buccaneer 635 models there are 3 different transformers possible: 60 cycle 110 volt, 25 cycles 110 volt and 25 cycles 220 volt. Tuning ranges are 540 to 1700 kHz broadcast, 1.7 MHz to 5.2 MHz and 5.4 to 15.3 MHz. There may have been used two different sets of knobs: wooden knobs (according to a photo of Greg Armstrong at Crosleyradios.com), which can be wrong knobs, or 8 sided bakelite knobs which can be seen on the Crosley folder. See also the model Buccaneer 635 with the same cabinet but other tubes and other features. There is also an Olympia thumbstone model. The chassis/schematic is identical with the model 655M. The date of the schematic is November 1935.

See details about season 1935/36 here. For Crosley and many collectors it is 1936 models, but fact is season 1935/36.
