Heathkit CR-1 Crystal Radio #1


This is the best Heathkit CR-1 crystal radio that I have.  The Bakelite case is in good shape with no cracks or chips, and the face plate is also in good condition. It works great and I will include a xerox copy of the instruction/construction manual. Along with the Miller 595, the Heathkit was considered one of the best performing commercially available crystal radios. $139SOLD 

Heathkit CR-1 Crystal Radio #2


This CR-1 is in good working condition  with a nice looking faceplate.  The Bakelite case had one corner chip and a couple of linear cracks in the corners as shown in the photos.  It works great and I will include a xerox copy of the instruction/construction manual. Along with the Miller 595, the Heathkit was considered one of the best performing commercially available crystal radios. $99SOLD EH 

Heathkit CR1 Crystal Radio #3


This Heathkit CR-1 Crystal Radio has one unfortunate chip in a corner someone tried to repair, and a scratch on the faceplate, neither of which affect the function of the radio. Also there is a little patch of tape residue on the top surface. It works fine, and the internal parts appear untouched. $89

Heathkit CR-1 Crystal Radio #4 with headphones and instruction book

This is a really nice Heathkit CR-1 crystal radio complete with the original Trimm Acme 4000 ohm headphones and instruction manual. The booklet is a bit worn but no writing inside. Hard to find the radio with the original headphones and manual. Radio tested and working well. $187SOLD

Miller Model 595 High Fidelity AM tuner crystal radio

The Miller 595 High Fidelity Tuner is actually a dual tuned circuit crystal radio praised as the most selective crystal radio ever made. This is made possible by the dual tuned bandpass circuit and the vernier gear reduction tuning drive mechanism. This set is in good working condition, and the cosmetic condition is good or better with some minor scratches on top and fading on the faceplate. Tested and working and I can pick up 10 or so stations here with a 15 foot indoor wire antenna. The original output cord can plug into an amplifier or you can hook up high impedance headphones. $125
