If you mean the smear across the undercase label, I think that's just the old glue that Crosley slathered on there that has turned color over the years. I've seen that glue around labels before but never slopped on like that. May have been a disgruntled Crosleyite.

Thats normal for a Crosley. It was done at the factory. I think it was done to help the label stay on. I have seen many Crosleys like that.

Well now I have seen another. Just picked one up at a flea market. Gave to much 30 bucks, but I wanted it. "Picks up static." Whats that tell us?

25 tabletops, 1 console, 1 console phono/radio and counting. 1 console Admiral phono/radio I am keeping my eye on for parts. The cabinet is shot.

The hunt must got on........................

Yup, label glue.



Looks sloppy now, but how often do people turn radios upside down to read labels?

So, in retrospect, ( I always wanted to use that word) The aging of the glue gives it some authenticity, so to speak?

Damn, I just realized this radio is as old as my wife. They musta used a better glue on her. flower

Perfectly normal for that model of Crosley.
Now for the purists, who would you reate that effect when applying your freshly printed label on your repaint?

Just use a little toner with the glue perhaps?. Use a basting brush to sloppily apply, and slap it on . Just like you were doing hundreds on the assemble line.
Th sloppy application adds character to those, and other models where a label placement is not a priority.

Crosley is not the only company to slop glue on like that.
I have seen Magnavox & RCA Tv sets and others too.
