Collins 51J-4 Shortwave Receiver, removed from government service in 1984. Tuning knob and rack handles damaged in shipment from Alaska to Michigan (as shown in pictures).

The receiver works fine and has all 3 mechanical filters. It was modified at some time, adding BNC connectors for Antenna and Speaker on the front and another unmarked BNC on the rear.

I had planned to use it for ham radio and SWL but other interests got in the way. It has been unused for many years, so just recently I powered it up by slowly increasing the AC input voltage to let capacitors re-form slowly.
