This model which sold for 19 when first introduced in 1960 remained in production until 1964. Today good examples of this radio are worth in the region of 20.

Roberts portable radios have a reputation for their high quality. This radio was given to me by Mrs Stevie Castle and working as well as the day it was made when I received it but was in need of a good clean.

I have several other Roberts Radios here here here and here
