Its called the Internet but its a time viewer and artifact locator. A couple more years before travel capability but you can find people lost in several periods of the past there (civil war, 1960s, cold war).

You guys need to update your want lists. I have at least 6 of the sets mentioned here, and I'm downsizing a bit

I'd like to get a TV like this one we had as a kid. I think it's an Arvin.

Heathkit round-CRT color set (GR-53, GR-53A)
Set of three RCA TRKs (ha ha!)
Three and a half years later, I have the Crosley, and one of the TRKs (a TRK-120 missing its TV chassis and CRT). Plus a CTC-4 that I never even dreamed of finding.

So, I still hope to find a Zenith "Mayflower" set, specifically the 10-inch one, a Heathkit roundie, and a building to put them in.

I'd really like a Samsung, Zenith, or Emerson set from the mid eighties.
My how times change! I'm using a Panasonic CTF-1900 19" from (guessing) the early to mid 80s as my everyday set. It was my bedroom set until the living room's 25" passed on. I think that solid state/crt based TVs reached a plateau of darned near perfection during the 80s as far as lasting forever. Some of the best I have had were from that decade. I guess engineers were at a place in time where the tube driven sets had become a thing of the past and their focus had shifted to making the better solid state set. And then better meant longer lasting still, but not for long. Move into the 90s and beyond and we saw IMO junk with crappy crts' that only lasted 5 or 6 years with all but no user controls that weren't on a remote control.

Didn't mean to get all wordy. But anyway I will stare at anything that produces a decent picture and the Panasonic has done so through many hours of playtime. I don't really see it as nostalgic as I do a few 40s and 50s sets that I own that are older than I am. It's just a good older TV and nothing I see out there in the flat world really says buy me frankly. I'm not far away down here in southern VA. If you're ever through here just stop by and get it. Old tube radios. Marantz receivers. or vintage test equipment would make good trades.
