 1960s Red Mini Radio BY-300 Portable Battery Micro Pocket Transistor 

We have on offer a tiny 1960s Red Mini Radio BY-300 Portable Battery Micro Pocket Transistor.  It takes one 1.5 volt UM-5 battery which, although shown in the photographs, will not be included due to the difficulty in shipping anything with batteries.

It measures only 4 x 4.5 cm in size and isn't much bigger than a modern day iPod! 

It only has a single button for tuning, and you have to move the radio around to optimise the signal. The sound can only be turned on by inserting the earpiece plug.

It's in pretty good cosmetic and is brand new old stock. The radio is made from red plastic and comes with its original ear plug and key ring clip. The glue on the tuning knob has leached out, and has discoloured the dial and slightly lifted the centre label. The price has been adjusted as a consequence.

The outer carton is made from plastic which has yellowed with age and has tears. 

 

They are pretty rare to find these days and are perfect for a collector!
