This one is interesting, because it is calibrated in wavelength meters rather than frequency Khz or Mhz. Further, the dial is set so that higher frequencies are on the left, much like some European radios. This make some sense being labeled in wavelength rather than frequency, since larger wavelengths are on the right. It's a plain radio - just a box. But the knobs are made of real wood and the escutcheon is brass, with a lit dial. It's also nice that it receives both longwave and shortwave, longwave being called AM or standard broadcast these days.
