(1947 - 5 inch projection tube)
This set was the top of the line for G.E. in 1947, selling for $2500, substantially more than a good car. The picture was generated on a small picture tube and enlarged with a lens. It had to be viewed in a very dark room.
Here is a photo of the radio/TV tuning dial. From the top scale to the bottom, it tunes the original FM radio band (42-50 mHz), the current FM radio band (88-108 mHz), AM broadcast, shortwave, and TV channels 1-13.
