Certainly not an amateur collection, what dealers are there in Hailsham?
What's that receiver top left in the first image, between the PCR and BC221?

Cor, what a collection! I spy a Trio R-1000. Anyone know what the receiver on the very top row of the first picture is - it's in the middle, right on top of the Marconi wave analyser. It rings a strong bell but I can't quite place it. Something like Tandy or Realistic maybe?

Sorry to quote myself, but I've found it. It's a Drake SSR-1.

Must be a dealer, shutting up shop. But, who on earth has twelve & a half grand to cough up for the lot.
First picture - bottom left - CT436 Oscilloscope. Knew them well when they came out in the mid 60's. I've got one, cost a fiver, and works spot-on.

Regards, David

Yes quite agree 12K does in no way IMO befit what's on display here even at collectors money! But worth a punt and offer I would of have thought as none of this is known as working etc-so bit of an Aladdin's cave but nice collection and hope it sees a good home even in bits and pieces sales etc.

The price is obviously just made up as a placeholder - the advert is asking for expressions of interest on individual items.

Clearly either a major collection, or a vintage radio dealer.

I don't see a BC221 top left in the first image, it looks a bit like a Collins TCS unit.

The price 12345 is an obvious filler to keep Gumtree happy. He's using them as advertising and intends to sell via private contact. Surprised the price was rounded and the 67 pence bit was lopped off.

Obviously a dealer as he regularly posts wanted posts on Gumtree. Posting pictures of masses of stuff is easier than listing it all individually.

Yes, I knew I recognised it as something

So, anyone recognise that receiver, linear scale with 3 or 4 bands, immediately above the legend:
GBY
100

I'll ask the seller
