    Cabinet: The Capehart model series 400 with Chippendale cabinet were made in five basic cabinet versions: The first models were called Chippendale 400 without suffix for 1931/32, followed by 400A (1932/33) and 400B (1933/34).
    Model Chippendale 405 followed as Chippendale 405C in 1934/35, 405D, 405E, 405F and 405G (1938/39).
    Then it changed style again and got model number Chippendale 410G, 410H, 410K and Chippendale 410M.After the war the models had the changer 41-E instead of 16-E: Chippendale 413N followed with a parallel Chippendale 414N, both for 1946-1948), followed by Chippendale 413P and 414P for 1948-50 as the last production.
    Style Chippendale was also used for Panamuse and others - and other companies used the style. See at the manufacturer Howard.

    The series 300C and 400C were made with either broadcast only or as "All-Wave" receiver for BC, LW and SW.
    We still have to find the right schematic and a cabinet photo.

    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 (P). See here the "Common information for the Capehart model pages for the 1930s and 1940s" and for the overview for Series 400 models here.
