Some fine lots there, I expect most of those estimates will be greatly exceeded even given the falling market for such things: at least, they would be if the sets were at Fakenham's auction, or else I'd find myself with a large haul of radios to make room for!

There's some interesting communications stuff there too; AR88, Hallicrafters, what looks like the mains power-supply for a PCR receiver, Eddystone 940, a Trio 9R-59 and what looks like a few of the WWII-era US aircraft 'command' receivers.

Very low estimates, no doubt aimed at pulling people in with the idea of getting a bargain. And you never know, there may well be bargains to be had! Some nice 20s stuff there.

They don't give the AR88 a suffix letter so no clue whether it's a D or an LF but they may not be in error. Very early ones had no suffix, they were essentially D types before there was differentiation. And this one has the all-yellow tuning scale. It might be a very early set. but It doesn't have the S-meter.
