Technical information

We recently acquired this rare 19 inch color prototype from Steve Dichter. This is the only surviving example. It uses the CBS 19VP22 round tube, and was made in 1954.


This set was mostly restored by Steve Kissinger. It has a few remaining items to be completed, but displays a nice picture.
