I acquired a radio (amateur?) from my Grandfather. The tag on the front shows: Radiola V Model AR-885-A by RCA. I would like to sell it for the estate but have no idea of it's value. If interested, I would appreciate your contact / offer with a fair price. If I do not find anyone interested, I would like to find a legitimate Amateur Radio museum to donate the radio to.

"If it is all complete, both halves of the Perikon detector, original top and audios good, say $550. If it is equipped with viable top exhaust tubes add $100. Should there be a long-wave plug-in coil accessory, add $200. "
