Fully original operational radio approved for use by the Nazi government, made by Radio H. Mende & Co., type VE301DYN, 110 v. The radio is mounted within a bakelite case, 12" tall, 11" wide, 7 1/4" deep with a beige and brown cloth (loose) covering the speaker. Three knobs control volume, tuning, and the chosen frequency, and a power switch is present. There is also a loud/soft switch, presumably to be used in the event the Gestapo makes a midnight visit for illicit listening. The front also bears two eagle and swastika images in slight relief. Various German cities (only) are listed on the face of the tuning plate. We were able to receive only AM transmissions...although with some effort it may "tune in Tokyo".
