Notes

The battery operated Sparton model 6-15 is in the same cabinet as the AC 6-15 Electric model. Both have a one dial (primary tuning control knob) operation. The ad September 1927 of "Radio Retailing" page 15 includes the models 6-15, AC 6-15, 6-26 and AC-7. The model shows a slightly different face in the ad between July and September 1927, but in July it might have been only a make up for photography.Radio Retailing September 1927 page 10 shows the "AC6" also "on Consolette" (below right). See also the article here about different radio seasons.

According to "Radio Manufacturers of the 1920's", volume 3, page 118, the AC 6-15 has a price of $ 188 in July 1927 but is replaced by the AC 62 (62) in October 1927.
