SCEPTRE STR-207

This Sceptre STR-207 Boys Radio was manufactured in Japan circa 1960. It may have been made by Sakura Denki Kogyo (see the Coronet STR-221 further down the page).

I have also seen this radio branded as a ‘Windsor’ and as a ‘Teen Tone’.

The vertical gold and black Sceptre logo adds to this radios appealing look. It also features an under-painted tuning dial that trumpets the fact it is ‘ALL TRANSISTOR’. 

The top of the textured metal speaker grill has a rather jagged look to it.

The baby blue cabinet looks great on this radio.

This radio suffered severe burn marks to the plastic cabinet due to contact with the vinyl carry case. Unfortunately the case reacts with the plastic creating chemical burns over time. I spent hours sanding and polishing the cabinet in order to remove those damn marks!
