Have old Cossor 8 valve superhet radio,circa 1950, medium

Customer Question

Have old Cossor 8 valve superhet radio,circa 1950,long medium and short wave bands.Internal frame aerial and connection for external aerial. Immaculate case and perfect working order when last used about 8 years ago. No spare valves, and electrolytic capacitors will almost certainly require reforming by initially connecting the radio to a low supply voltage and gradually increasing to the rated 240 volts,not having been used for this length of time. Is this likely to have any value ?

I understand your answer, cost of shipping to usa exceeds likely selling price, so no value

Hello,

Your number is ***** showing on here, I am located in the US. Cost of shipping is usually paid by the buyer in addition to the purchase price, so the radio does have value.
