Been lurking here since spring when I ran across bandersen's Ge 21c2465 thread.

Usually just an old car and tools guy but when I see a masterpiece like a 1957 GE Coaxial TV I just gotta have it.

Found mine in a local Antiques store.

Need to clean it up and post better pictures but here is a picture from when I got it last spring.

Yesterday my 74 year old mother noticed my TV in a commercial.

It's for a toy company that was started by a women who is an engineer and is making toys that will increase young girls interest in physics.

Pretty cool...

Welcome! Nice find! Those Coaxial consoles from the late 50's were about as far out as GE ever got style-wise, but they're still nice looking sets.

Looks Great and bright! With my favorite handymen are on as well. Welcome to the TV funhouse!

Its a miracle if thats not a replacement CRT, the one in my coaxial is pretty dead as most others ive found.

The CRT may be a replacement. Here is a picture of the tag on it.

Meanwhile this morning I found the TV in a new music video by Avicii. The singer is Dan Tyminski, who was the voice of The Soggy Bottom Boys from O Brother Where Art Thou.

Bandersen seems to have a pretty big following in the video production community!

Only problem is they're showing color programming on that GE in the video ;)
