Default Wartburg 5000 radio. Value?

I have a Wartburg 5000 radio in very good condition. I would like to know how much I can sell it for.

Thanks.

Hello and welcome.

This is a large valve radio from, I would guess, the late 1950s or early 1960s, with rather plain styling and only AM wavebands (i.e. without FM). I suspect it was made in the former East Germany.

In this country, I would say it would be worth 25 or so at most, but I'm not sure what the market is like in Greece.

Nick.

P.S. I've never heard of the Wartburg brand with regard to radios, though my neighbours had a Wartburg car in the 1970s which looked much older than it actually was.

I like the Cossor Melody Maker 500, repaired radio #8 on that site, I could not be so bothered with such a common set but he has done a great job.
His cabinets look lovely, not all glossy varnish, I suspect just oiled.
