Text at bottom looks like it says "color sentry" which would probably mean system 3 zenith...Though it could be anything.

It looks like a dresser with the 2 drawers in the wrong slots. Oh... you meant the tv.

Yeah, but I had to pay 440% more for it, plus I had to go across town to get it, plus it's another one of those high hour sets. The CRT was totally wasted as found, but the CR70 brought it back.

Set looks much more dignified after it's been cleaned up.

Dave, Is the new set a tri focus one? There are two tri focus CC2 sets in my collection. Those Crts' make a great picture and seem to last forever. All the best,Tom.J

If by tri-focus, you mean an inline gun, yes. They had been out for over 10 years when this set was made.

Yes i mean inline gun CRTs',should have asked if there were two leads going to pins 1 & 3 of the socket, as couldn't make it out on the snapshot you posted. All the best,Tom.J

This set makes an OK picture, but for something made as late as 85, I'd expect a tad better. Still, a very good set for casual TV watching.

CRT looks tired.

This one not an EFL gun.
IIRC tri-focus AKA EFL ended with the 9-160 system 3 sets.
IIRC started in H line on high end 17" & 19".

Is the set a 13"? Kind of hard to tell from the picture!

For comparison, here is the picture on my 1982 System 3 TOL set.
