The M31 gallery of...
cool & collected:

1960 Sony TR-609

3 3/4"H x 6"W x 1 1/2"D

Handsomely distinguished in its cabinet design, a very nice transistor radio which has three "collectibility" strikes against it:
1) it's a "coatpocket" radio
2) where's the reverse plastic?
3) it ain't rare...
...which is to say that "collectibility" is not always the best guide to what is worth having in one's collection...
