PRC-8 RT-174 US Military Radio Receiver / Transmitter. This Radio set was new in the package when a farmer first acquired it. He tells me he took it out of the plastic and put it together.
It then sat for a extended period of time. There is some brass oxidation on tips of a couple straps. Did not attempt to clean. Otherwise Canvas & Straps seem GREAT. To my knowledge this has never been turned on.
Parts / accessories seem complete (see pictures). TM 11-612 Operation and Organizational Maintenance: 50 Pages: 1954. These Radios are NOT that common especially in this complete and this condition.PRC-8 was used in Korea and Vietnam. Great collectable, museum piece, or fantastic for re-enactment use.
