Smile FOC sorry remains of an early Philips radio. Can take to RWB

Good evening,
I came across this little wreck a while back and have done nothing with it. It is an early Philips shoebox radio I think. It only has 2 valves remaining and the top cover is missing and the dial is snapped. Other than that it seems fairly complete. It is FOC for whoever would like it and I can take it to RWB this Sunday.

Interesting to see the tuning cap shielded like that. Don't think I have seen that before.

It certainly is a very over engineered construction for a radio. It is incredibly solid. Quite heavy as well.
