Notes

The two capacitor-drive tuning dials are marked in wave lengths.  It is called the "Treasure Chest" model because it has brass handles on the side.  

The output tube filament has a 4 Ohm resistor in series, producing a 1 Volt drop (.25 Amp for a 201A) to reduce the 6 V storage to 5 V filament. In case .5 Amp type shall be used, the series resistor can be paralleled with an other 4 Ohm. This is selectable by a jumper bridge on the chassis.

The price listed is the suggested retail but the "street" price in catalogues is $54.00 (exclusive of speaker (US $15.25), tubes  (US $1.22/each), Batteries (B,C,and storage A) plus Trickle Charger (ca. $ 16.50) or power supply (US $35.70) and aerial (US $1.75).  Manufacturer's literature states:
