Superheterodyne radio

With medium wave, long wave and short wave. The radio was produced from 1952 until 1953. The technical design of the radio was a bit old-fashioned for the period (it was based on a 1941 Philips "four tube system" with loctal tubes), but is was quite dependable because of the proven design. Many radios were manufactured (it is estimated that more than a million of them were made) for export to the West as well as to other countries behind the Iron Curtain. The Talisman radios became very collectable, because of their design. The colour of the radio is a dark reddish brown with contrasting white knobs (urea formaldehyde on a bakelite core); the scale has 2 colours.
