Default Pye 555

I am looking for a rough value of this early model and tidy set (1927).

Also, are they pretty rare?

Thank you

The 1927 version is the one I have,

https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...ad.php?t=19668 -

there was an earlier, 1925, iteration with horn speaker. There aren't many around, and their acceptance at the time must have been restricted by the limitation to receiving a single (LW) station. I was some way above other forum members in my recent estimate of the current value of a rather nice Graves Regional, so, taking that on board, I'll venture a ball-park figure of 100, but condition will count for much. Mine as the thread above notes cost me 2 in 1972: it's a sobering thought that the set has been with me now for well over half its days!

Thank you Paul, this one is the early version. That value seems near enough.

Regards,
