Looks like there's two of them on eBay; $600 with no bidders and a $375 buy it now with five "offers", all declined. I'm guessing it's worth not more than a couple hundred bucks. Craiglist or eBay probably best bet to sell.

Wow.... Hate to be a downer, but $375 might be pushing the ebayer's luck.
I think my mom got ~$100 for an RCA hi-fi from about the same time frame.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there is currently little to no value in those... things. Less than $100, less than $50. Most buyers of vintage audio are at least looking for earlier, non-tacky (to be blunt) sets. You might find "the" buyer that will take it for a hundred or two, but that's extremely optimistic

You can head over to Antique Radio Forums • Index page to get a better idea of what the market is like and what collectors are looking for.

I would be careful of showing your Koronette there...

That piece looks pretty awesome, but I agree, you probably won't be able to get too much for it. I'd love to have it for the turn table alone, so I hope someone else shares my interest and helps you out with a good price!

1970's, just for everyone's information, is not ANTIQUE. I have socks that old. I don't know how we survived the 60's, but that's another story

Right; 70's is "retro". Chandler, on the other hand, is "antique".

1970's is ~40yrs ago....


Your socks may be considered collectors items in some circles....
