FS: 1949 Motorola Table model TV

Hi All,
A neighbor of mine, has this 1949 Motorola for sale, as MAKE OFFER. I went over there last night, checked the CRT (looks to be a 10BP4), which is weak, but has plenty of cut-off and no shorts, and no brightener ever on it, so I believe it will "wake up." The back is missing, as well as the cord, but looks like all tubes in place. I did notice the 2nd. Anode lead is disconnected from the CRT, and, judging by the chassis dust, has all been untouched, HV lead included, for many years! Set is dry, and no rust, I did not notice any odor, and the set is in a non-smokers dry garage. Cabinet has scratches and scuffs, the knobs, all are there. There is an antique pair of rabbit ears on top, which I believe will be included with the set. Please see photos attached. If interested, send me a private message, and I will give you the owner's phone number, and you can contact them directly, they are nice folks! I have explained that it's no where near an expensive set, and they are looking to sell very reasonably (make offer), to someone interested, rather that throw it away, so by this, I think you could score it for well under $50.00, in my opinion. The set is in my neighborhood, in Farmington Hills, MI, a far northwest suburb of the Detroit area. Thanks in advance.

I like it. If no one else wants it, and transport to an ETF meet could be arranged I'd give ~$10 for it.

Tom, I could bring to the Fall ETF Meet, but the price you would negotiate with the seller directly. I have the contact info., but don't want to put the phone number out for all, if anyone wants to contact the seller, I have the info.
Dave.

I noticed a cover for a "UHF adapter", I didn't think UHF was around before 1951 or so.

Dave,
The back of the TS-14 chassis looks like its' dated 1949. Motorola engineers probably knew about the upcoming frequency allocations for UHF.

If someone makes a deal on this set, I can bring it to the next Early Television Museum swap meet, in Ohio (if that will help, there will likely be a Fall Meet. Again, I have the owner's contact information, send me a PM. Thanks!

I've got one of these. 10VT24, I believe is the model number. I could never get it going, reliably. Mine needed a yoke, as the old one was shorted and stuck to the crt. I had to destroy it, to get it off the crt.
After re-cap and some "fine tuning" it did work, but I couldn't figure why it kept blowing a power resistor, thus making the set useless, afterword's. Youd go to turn it on and, POP...damn it....

I think there were a few other minor issues as well, but I don't remember right now at the moment. Id have to look up the old thread here on the site about it.
