Default Marconi 394A receiver

Good evening all and thanks for accepting my request Paul. My late father left me his Marconi 394A marine receiver with a power supply he built as part of his electrical engineering degree he received from Liverpool University in around the 1950's.
It was working (took time to "warm up") which always intreaged me as a small boy when I put it in storage many years ago. I was wondering if there is a market for these old radios?
Regards Clive

I don't know about a 'market' but a few Marconi Marine enthusiasts here could possibly be interested. Quote This is an early TRF set designed for marine use that was also adopted as 'Admiralty Pattern 361' for naval use

Do you have any photos of yours?

It's good here

There is certainly an interest in these old marine radios. They are fairly rare now as better sets from WWII were widely available to radio amateurs from the late 1940s, old TRF sets such as this were broken up for parts. Please don't throw it away.
