Help with my Philco! - Guest - 09-14-2008 09:44 PM
I've been trying to find information on the Philco I have. The sticker on the back says it's model number H1994LK. It has a turntable, radio and cassette player. Looks to be made out of wood laminate and plastic. It's dimensions are 55 l x 17 w x 27 h.
From what I have found it's nothing like the old vintage Philcos. I imagine that it was made in the '60s.
I'm ultimately looking to see how much it's worth, but I also found through my research that information like that is hard to come by. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry about the size of the pictures. I'm really not experienced with resizing them.
Note from site admin: Sorry, but the photos which were attached to this post are no longer available.

I would guess your stereo was made in the early 70s since it has a cassette player...something that was not common until then. Most console stereos of the mid sixties and later had 8-track players instead of cassette players.
I'm afraid your console stereo has no collectible value because of its age (not very old) and its construction (wood laminate and plastic). At the present time, I am not aware of anyone who is interested in these pieces.
That situation could change in the coming years...or not. One never can tell for sure.
Most of us in the radio collecting hobby really don't get into "what it is worth" questions because values are widely subjective, can vary from one part of the country to another, etc. It is commonly accepted among advanced collectors that a radio is, ultimately, worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it at a given time.
And I do not mean to be put-offish or sarcastic at all...I am merely giving you the facts as things currently stand.
