    Here we have a 1953 Valco Chicago 51 5 watt tube amp. The handle is broken and it has cosmetic wear from being 63 years old. It appears to be original with the exception of the power cord (3 prong now) and the "death cap" being removed. The original cord and cap will come with it. It also still has the original spare fuse in the envelope stapled to the inside of the cabinet. This amp sounds fantastic. $600 shipped CONUS.

    For the lucky soul who buys this amp:
    Antique Electronics Supply has replacement leather handles.

    It appears to be a 10" speaker.


    Thanks for the heads-up.

    Someone on another forum just informed me that the model is actually a Comet.
