$50 RCA roundie in Seattle CL

No affiliation. Big fat cataract, but who's quibbling at that price? Looks newer than my CTC-11; maybe someone else knows how much newer.

You can't beat a nice danish modern cabinet. It's funny how the style which now epitomizes the 60's was actually rather rare. Most people opted for style that were (at the time) more traditional.

I knew that. It was a late night joke, really.

It depends on whether the set has UHF or not. If so, it was made after April 30, 1964; if not, it's post-'64. RCA made a VHF-only color console that looks just like this one; I saw a picture of it in an RCA brochure I downloaded (or saw somewhere on the web) recently. Regardless, this TV looks as if it is in excellent shape as far as the cabinet is concerned; don't know about the innards, but if it is being sold for $50 or best offer there may well be some chassis problems, unless the owner just wants it out of the house ASAP and doesn't care how much or how little money he or she gets for it.

If the only problem the TV has is the cataract on the CRT, however, this could be a great score for someone, as RCA and other makes of TV consoles such as this one are becoming rare. Depending on the CRT in this set (some roundie CRTs are becoming scarce), it may simply be a matter of replacing the tube, or else just removing the safety glass on the old one and continuing to use it, depending on the emission level of the guns and whether or not there are shorts anywhere in the tube. I have read in posts to this forum that CRTs with cataracts are often perfectly usable indefinitely once the safety glass is removed or once it falls off the tube.

It says "All Channel" and appears to have two tuning knobs.

I'd believe this one to be the CTC-16 chassis. The CTC-15's had the more "deluxe" control panel models also that looks close to this one but is slightly different.

It's a first generation CTC-16. I have one. Mine isn't too bad, but does need some work to make it perfect. Mine will change tint once in awhile, and it's about 1/4 off on horizontal width. Mine has a 1977 RCA "Black Matrix" replacement CRT.
Nice set, I hope someone saves it!
