Hello,

I love all things vintage and admire vintage radios. I have joined to seek advice.

As I would like to sell my Grandmother's old His Master Voice Television complete with instruction book in good working order. I plug a VCR and DVD combo in to the back so I can watch digital TV. I think it's a late 70's model as it's colour in a veneer cabinet on chrome wheels.

Any advice as to where I could sell this and what the value would be??

Cheers,
Liza

Hi Liza,

The model number and a photo or two would be helpful.

You can send photos to the administrator as per #6 in the posting instructions above the quick reply box.

Okay, I have sent a photo. I am not sure of the model number off the top of my head and I can not find a similar on in the internet.

Hi Liza,

That looks like a HMV B-4803. I found one abandoned in the bus bush a while back, complete with the chrome stand!

Value-wise, these sets don't seem to be worth much. I have trouble giving sets of this era away for free! Sometimes though, there is someone willing to pay $10-$20 for a bit of "retro" to display in their living rooms. The chrome stand does add to the value, I'd imagine.

Abandoned in a bus? I'm surprised the driver would have allowed it on to begin with...

Or did you misspell 'bush'?

Thank you! I just found the user manual it is indeed a B4803-(A). The days when television user manuals were 6 pages and with one input jack.

Ideally I would just like to find it a good home. As it's feels like a waist to give it to landfill when it still works a treat.

Liza
