Color Roundies For Sale

Can you have too many roundscreen color sets? I have more than my share, I guess, and while I'd prefer to unload some (many) of my b/w sets I know these will be an easier sale. I am not going to sell all of them, but will let 2 or 3 go. All of these are currently working. Do not expect perfection. These are sold as-is, where is, located on the Eastern Shore of MD, about 90 minutes from Baltimore or DC, about 2.5 hours from Philadelphia. You pick up, or have someone pick them up. Occasionally I get to the Balt/DC area or to Lancaster, PA. I am asking $250 per set except the -15, I want $275. I have posted some photos and will post more as I can.
What I have available right now:
RCA CTC-9 metal table model, very clean, if you are picky you might want to paint the top. Strong 21CYP22. Has a tough convergence issue, may need a replacement assembly for the neck?

RCA CTC-11 metal console, woodgrain, easily converted to table model. This is a seperate safety glass set but with a rebuilt bonded tube that is showing just very slight cataracts, if they were bad I would have fixed them by now. CRT takes some time to warm up but looks okay, I haven't tested it in years and have not rejuvanated it. Set has intermittent audio which is caused by something loose up in or around the tuner cluster, I just haven't taken the time to find it.

RCA CTC-12 masonite woodgrain console. CRT is like the one in the '11, not the strongest in the lot but it looks decent when it wakes up. I have done cataract surgery on this.

RCA CTC-15, my best all-around color roundie with a nice cabinet and a good looking CRT. I have repaired the cataracts on it (it is not original to the set; it spent some time poorly stored and lost a lot of its aquadag. Doesn't seem to be an issue, though)

Zenith 25MC30, brown metal cabinet console. Missing the back, I fashioned a homemade one which isn't pretty but it keeps the cats out! Good CRT, one of those "rubber seal" types that isn't bonded so no cataracts.

The photos are, left to right: CTC-9, CTC-11, CTC-12

If interested, send me a Pm or email.
Thanks!

Another shot of the CTC-12, then the CTC-15 and the Zenith.

Note: while cash is preferred, I may consider certain trades. (Philco or Setchell-Carlson color roundie, certain GE color sets with KE chassis or older,etc)

How are they, electrically? Have any been recapped, or are they in the original state?

Im still trying to get over the great BW sets you and I traded. Motorolas, Admiral, Emerson, SC etc....and that swivel base 69 Zenith 23" will keep me busy well into retirement a long time from now.
I have two RCA color roundies and that is enough considering I cant get around to restoring them with all my other distractions. That French Provincial CTC15 is pretty neat I never saw one like that. Its the brunette version of my CTC12

Yep, SCTV-might as well have something good to watch while I'm doing screenshots!

I would say these have been partially recapped. I know I replaced all the filters in the CTC-11 and I know I had to replace at least one of the cans on the CTC-15. The CTC-12 and the Zenith both worked, more or less, after I jumped the power switches (yep, they were both bad.) Other than that, mostly a tube here or there has been changed. The 11 needed the dual diode in the horiz circuit replaced.

Bill, I won't forget that offer-it will probably be a while before I do any more selling or swapping.
