There's no sticker whatsoever and no signs one was ever on there. As they're pretty big and the radio's 35+ years old, I'd have thought it would've left a blemish.

No sorry, and as it's tightly-fitting on a shelf under a load more shelves and radios, it's not easy to get at without making a lot of work.

The one on ebay's only at £25 at the mo. Could be a bargain for someone.

It sold for £53 with a zero-feedback bidder winning. Will it be relisted shortly?...

Magpies like shiny things. A Mustang 3000 would be better for it though ;)

I’ve got number one

110001

It’s sick though i bought it half working and then it died
