The dial on mine is about that dark too, so it was either made that way or normal aging...

That chassis could be only a set of filters away from working...That's all mine needed.

I have a GE model M81. There is no Riders listings on the "M" models. My M81 is an eight tube model with PP 42's. Mine also has a headphone jack and switch, to silence the speaker. The seller thought that the jack and switch was added after market.
I found out later on, that GE sold this set as a communications receiver, per QST magazine. There was also an optional BFO unit, available.
The actual radio is the same as an RCA model 242.

Interesting about the discolored dials. Stromberg-Carlson models 82 and 83 also have the same problem, and perhaps other brands from 1934-35 era. My 82 looks dark red when illuminated.

I'd held onto that GE for a long time; the cabinet was badly damaged. I kept saying I'd someday be able to fix it, but got tired of waiting! I put it out at a few swap meets this year with no takers so the cabinet went in the trash; I did find a buyer for the speaker via the ARF.
