FOR TRADE: I have a black battery cover for a Global GR-900. Looking for round Panasonic TVs and any TV that is weird shaped or visibly different in appearance. Also wanted are the small Sony Watchman TVs preferrably with box and instructions. Have other trades or will pay the difference in value. See my other ads for the model numbers of these TVs. I am not locked into just these models and will consider others. I am also seeking all literature, sales brochures, instruction booklets, even empty boxesrelating to transistor TVs. No, I am not contemplating a new book on TVs just something new to collect and keep up my interest in transistors and in radios themselves. Marty Bunis, 32 West Main Street, Bradford, NH 03221.
