probably the best year for Sparton when it came to styling of their
radios. In that year, mirrored glass and chrome was
incorporated in the styling of a number of sets, which gave their
radio line a very modernistic and chic look for the time. This
is the largest tombstone radio Sparton offered in 1937 and is one of
the largest tombstone sets Sparton ever made. The most notable
feature of this set is the colorful, artistic large dial.
There are four bands, each in a different color of translucent
white, red, blue and yellow with a cream logo in the center.
The dial's background consists of a dark green reflective glass
mirror. When the dial is lit, everything that's in color
lights up while the green background remains dark. This same
dial can be found on a number of the upper models including the top
of the line for that year, the 1867. I bought this set at the
1995 I.H.R.S. October swap meet which was held at Greenfield,
