Hodgson's Antiques--South Pasadena, CA
Priced at $225 "as-is"
Price tag says it is from 1921-25. The tube lineup suggests not, so I check. Would you believe 1937? (At least they are in the right century.....Wink )

If I can't buy it for something reasonable, at least I'll try to get them to change the tag...

What would be reasonable? cabinet and chassis seem to be complete, original, and intact, but missing one knob and the others do not seem original. Dial cracked--no dial cover. No rust to speak of.

It is 1937 model year. I believe it was introduced in late 1936. It is my opinion the price is a little high.

I totally agree---12 years ago, my model 116X (tombstone) cost $65 (also "as-is"). It's been "as-is ever since, but that's another story.....
The 116 is much more substantial, so---even allowing for inflation---I'm having a hard time seeing how one would pay more than $75 or so for the 37-60.

Any other opinions?

PS--there's at least 3 different version of the 37-60---two of which are very similar (pointy-top cathedral). I don't know yet which this one is.

While this was the final iteration (and most perfected) of the Model 60 chasses, which began in 1934 I believe, unless it was from the first production runs in mid-1936, it has the least desirable cabinet as far as I am concerned. That was the one with the photofinish front. If the front is essentially unblemished, then it might be more valuable to a collector, but I would estimate in the less than $100 range as well. I have one as well as one of the prettier veneered earlier 60s and I paid $35 each for them several years ago.

Many of you already know this but Philco model numbers from about 1937 to into the 50's have the year as the first two digits of the model number. 37-116=1937, 42-350=1942. It would have to be almost mint for me to go even $100.
