This Silvertone 1827 with an artistic finish came to the shop for an overhaul. It had been kept running for about two decades by its original owner before being put aside, and ended up getting all new capacitors and a new #85 tube which had shorted out. It had been well loved as the quality of the historical repairs was very high, and it had all Silvertone brand tubes, so could even have been dealer-maintained at Sears its whole life. After component replacement and an alignment, it really sings and has spot-on dial tracking and even pulled in a shortwave station.
