Above, the tiny dial which is
common amongst American sets of this period.
Right, the Mr Marconi stealth tax notice
and below a note that echoes that attached to modern washing
machines. Maybe the precaution of tightening the chassis was
to deal with shipping from the USA?
Bottom right is the code of the tuning
condenser. Philco had a regime, similar to that used later during
WW2 by the UK military. Every single part had a special code,
so the Philco Radio Service Bulletin had a listing which has
"Two Gang Condenser and Trimmers... 31-1566" and finally
the serial number stamped on the chassis. Unfortunately the identification
paper inside the case has been torn off.
