Welp. I Bought it. It is an 8T241. And he really was asking $20. Apparently his father used to own some kind of radio museum. And he claimed the set was working 10 years ago. Under the chassis looks like several caps were replaced... in the 70s, probably. The best part is, dude pulled out an extra crt and gave it to me. 10BP4. The extra jug has some scratches on the face, it's obviously rebuilt, and it's filth-encrusted. But hey, good deal for $20, eh?

The cabinet is in pretty rough shape. Doesn't look like it has any water damage, but a lot of the veneer is chipped off, scratches here and there, and the finish is very worn.

It has:
All the knobs
All the tubes (minus one 12au7)
A rat's nest
Cob webs

Missing:
Back cover
HV cage cover
Bottom metal cover

I variac'd it and it actually turned on. Picture is crap, that's supposed to be a test pattern. This set is probably going to sit around for a long time. I really didn't want to buy it, but I couldn't pass up this deal.
