PRC-6 Walkie-Talkie in very good condition. Included is antenna which is straight with no bends. BA-270U Dry Cell Battery which can be used for display purposes. I have not test it but would guess that it is dead after this many years.
Battery is also very good physical condition. Radio has all knobs, plastic covers over speakers and rubber over Push-To-Talk button is like new. Radio has all the correct markings in English. Inside markings shows it was updated in Oct. Back cover has the web strap for carrying.This would make a great addition for a collector as radio is in very good condition for a radio that is approximately 70 years old.
