RCA CTC-4 in Custom Cabinet

This set was found at an estate sale in New Jersey. Originally, it was in a Haviland style cabinet, but a custom cabinet was made for it, possibly some time after it was purchased. It has a replacement 21AXP22, installed in 1961. Thanks to Dave Sica and Darren Hoffman, who located and rescued this set. It will be brought to the 2011 convention. More information on the CTC-4 is available at Ed Reitan's site. RCA also made CTC-4 based sets for other manufacturers.
