Emerson C-502C

This set was made in 1956. It was in a storage locker in Brooklyn. Thannks to Dave Sica for spending an entire day rescuing it. Its design appears to be similar to the 21CT55, but the chassis layout is different. Emerson introduced a line of sets in 1958 with the same model numbers, but it is a complete different design, with a vertical chassis. Our set is most likely a prototype.
