Comet 660

A stunning pocket radio dating from the early 60's with a gorgeous reverse painted dial, brass name plate and a cool cloisonne' badge at the bottom left of the speaker grille.

(Most of these badges fall off - I am lucky to have this one complete).

This is a well built little radio. Very hefty and solid.

 

Also found as; Harper's, Goldtone, Crest, Americana, Three Star, Daylite and Apollo (model TN-603). Each of these have slightly different reverse painted dials. The Americana has a very cool checkerboard design.

 

Below is a Goldtone 8 transistor variant.
