    I cannot comment on the radio in question as it is really outside my knowledge. But eagles on radio sets are original and wartime, that much I do know.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Niblet,

    On first appearances, i thought that this radio had been tarted up to be something it isn't, to fool collectors of 3rd Reich equipment.

    But i got curious after Ade said the decals were real. Why put real ones on to an old radio set? Anyway, after a bit of digging, i found this, K62 Radio Nora . Unbelievably, it's genuine!!

    Regards, Ned.

    Don't ask me where I saw it, but I am certain I have seen a wartime pic of one of these together with a group of Luftwaffe airmen.

    This is the real thing! I have seen a few of them, my father was a radiorepairman for German Grundig, so, naturally i got interested in radios. And he is a hamradio operator so, the whole thing came naturally. Beleve me, this is an original... Ill buy it anyday ^^
    Great find, these are rare. All I have is an Volksempfenger... Jelous

    How much is that radio worth to a collector?
    Or in an auction?

    Interesting question,,,the short answer is: Not as much as they are pricing them at! I see these on dealers sites for 2-3 thousand dollars,,,,,

    I had a guy willing to sell me a mint one for 800.00,,,,even that I felt was too high
    thats just my personal opinion
