Hacker RP17 Mini - Herald (1962/3)
The Hacker RP17 was first produced in 1962, and due to its small size fitted perfectly to the portable market, in fact this was the only radio that was fitted with PP7 batteries and within 2 years the A version replaced this with a slightly larger cabinet to allow the standard PP9's as fitted on there over models at the time. The radio is all original with no other parts replaced and the condition is very good, the handle is like new and the vbrass speaker grill is in excellent condition.
There is only some dis-colouration on the dial plate, this is in fact due to the transfer often sticking to the chassis , a common issue with these early models, see photo's. The radio offeres Medium and Longwave reception with that standard loud Hacker sound. This is a perfect early 60's classic radio offered with PP3 rather than the PP7 fittings, for ease though i can provide the original battery terminals if requested, and has 1 years gurantee with batteries included.
