Your ARTS&P sticker equates to 1955 onwards.

Cosmetically, that set looks very close to a picture I have of the STC model 5162 of 1956, however the 5162 circuit does not have a gram switch, and it has a 6BA6 rather than a 6BA5.

The model 5182 schematic has the same line up as the 5162, but has the gram switch, so I guess yours is a model 5182, albeit with a 6BA5 in it (unless that was a misread?).

Cannot be a 6BA5 unless its been modified 6BA5 has no pins.

Sorry, it was a 6BA6, it was a misread

Coincidentally, a 5162 has just appeared on eBay.

I'd also like a Schematic for this radio aswell, and other related service data
