The one has some kind of plastic front screen protector. It was working until the chassis was removed for transport. When it was put back in, it wouldn't tune in a signal. Probably just a tube or connection. The only thing missing from this one is the tuning knob.

I am attaching a couple of pictures. Not asking for anything other than pick up and a good home for them. I don't want to put them in the hot garage for storage.

You should contact Shango066 on Youtube. I know he used to post here years ago but I can't remember his username. He would give a good home to those sets, and he lives in LA.
