The M31 gallery of...

1960 Penny's 41-8TM-360,
1961 8TM-41, 1960 8TM-294B

all three models measure 3 3/4"H x 6 1/2"W x 1 1/2"D

The (top) Penny's radio is a variation on the (bottom) Toshiba 294. The 294 is best known for its unique aluminum "waffle" grill with a blue fabric beneath.

The Penny's version had a metal grill which was painted aqua -- and a painted grill is always an indication of going that extra mile...

The (middle) 8TM-41 came out a year after the other two, but it looks like it should have preceeded them by a decade or more. The photo doesn't show it, but the 41's sliderule tuning dial could feel right at home on any 1940s US tabletop tube radio...

All three models are 8-transistor radios.
