The Grundig Micro Boy is arguably the most spectacular of the early transistor radios made by the Grundig Company of Germany. This little 6-transistor radio is renowned as a great performer packaged in a cabinet with a beautiful reverse painted dial face and a highly-polished machined speaker grill. The Grundig Micro Transistor Boy is featured in a number of websites devoted to classic early transistor radios, including: http://www.transistor.org/collection/grundig/grundig3.html, http://www.abetterpage.com/transistors/trans/Euro/1MicroBoy.html, http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/grundig_micro_transistor_boy.html,   and http://www.oldradioworld.de/microb2.htm.

 

This example is in good cosmetic condition, but does have a repaired and retouched chip on one bottom corner and a repaired hairline on one top corner. (These radios have a very tight fit between the two halves and so cracks and chips are very very common. These radios need to be opened with extreme care: the best way is to pull the two halves apart directly and not to pry off at the coin slot.) The speaker grill looks good as does the dial face. The radio works.     

Standard shipping as stated is for residents of the continental USA.  I will also gladly ship this outside the USA via USPS, but if you reside outside the continental USA, please inquire for postage charges and payment methods before bidding. Please be advised on international shipments, I ONLY mail Express or Priority Mail with a certificate of mailing.  If you do not live in the USA and want to bid on this radio, please check the usps.com website for the estimated rate.

CORRECTION: The repaired and retouched chip is on one top corner of the back, not bottom corner.  I apologize for the oversight.
