Maybe you guys can help:

When I was much younger, I pulled a 13" set out of a trash heap thinking I could rob some parts out of it for some other purpose. But before I stripped it I decided to plug it in, and lo and behold it powered up and was COLOR! Now this set was all tube, so I presume it was made in the early 60's. Brand was Sylvania, had a black all metal cabinet and I believe VHF and UHF tuners. I can't be certain, but I think it had a handle on top and whip antennae. Last thing I remember is it had the Sylvania 3-dot emblem in it, any chance someone here knows which set it could possibly be? I wouldn't mind having one again, for nostalgia's sake.

You and me both brother. I still regret canning a curb find about ten years ago..an early seventies metal case sylvania solid state color. There is a post on videokarma about it buried deep someplace. It ran for a while but would kick off the ckt breaker and the filter cans did not get warm. Likely a simple fix but at the time I was finding 4 or 5 sets a week for free unlike today. Had a dark tint 25" tube which showed life on a b&k 460 series tester.
