How much would you pay for a radio? I usually buy off Ebay these days because I can pick and choose based on many factors, including price, which on Ebay is usually far less than charged by antique dealers. However there has been some quite high prices paid willingly for radios in the past month or so. Is this a trend that will continue or is this a brief spurt in price where the novetly will soon wear off.


Some of the high prices paid for radios on Ebay lately.

As you can see in the screenshot above, $6,000 is alot of money to pay for a radio but the buyers, and to a certain extent myself, may argue that in the case of the latter two sets, the sacrifice is worth the effort to save these rare receivers (the largest bakelite radio in the world) from being sent to the tip.
