Notes The Philco model 60 series included nine versions over four years, all using similar 5-tube chassis.

There were six versions of the 60B cathedral. Version 1 (1933) had the simpler flat-front version of the classic cathedral cabinet with spade-shaped speaker grill which was used on many 1933 models. Version 2 (1934) had three vertical bars through the center of the center of the speaker grill, with short downward curving arcs added at the bottom of the speaker. Versions 3 and 4 (1934-35) had similar cabinets with an oval shaped speaker grill with a stair-step pattern; version 3 had a metal escutcheon with "Philco" stamped into the metal, and version 4 had a black bakelite escutcheon with a "Philco" decal on the center of the wooden front. Version 5 (1935) had the same cabinet as versions 3 and 4, but with a larger black bakelite escutcheon and a new dial scale design. Version 6 (1936) was a new style cabinet with a continuous arch from the base of the cabinet.

Model 60MB (1934) was a tombstone with a modern design, having three downward facing arcs through the speaker grill and hexagonal knobs.

Model 60L (1933-35) was an ornate lowboy with four vertical bars through the speaker grill and other embellishment.

Model 60F (1935-36) was a floor-type console with a tulip-shaped speaker grill.

The general spirit of the model 60 series continued into 1937 and 1938 with models 37-60 and 38-60, which were also 5-tube 2-band radios.
