Old Zenith Universal Wavemagnet Radio:

This is an old AC powered AM tube radio that came from my grandmother. The model # is 5G500; it's hard to make it out. It's stamped in white on the inside of the rear door. I pinched the ad below from an auction site that was claiming it dated from 1940. The power cord is new, and the handle has deteriorated (though obviously still there). The radio works wonderfully though,and apart from the above is in darn near new condition. The Wavemagnet antenna is also in very good shape. I've learned that it does in fact date from 1940-41 or so. It was also a very popular radio, so there were a bunch made. This is good for obtaining many parts, but not for collectibility; I've been told it's worth about 25 bucks, maybe a bit more. Thanks to Miles Steuding I have the schematics for it, thanks Miles!
