Vtg Mercury Vacuum Tube Tester Self Service Retail Store Display Cabinet Sign
Here's a hard to find original vintage mid century Mercury brand Self Service tube tester kiosk / store display. This would have been installed in a drug store or hardware store in the 1950's - 1960's. This unit has quite a bit of finish wear on the tester itself as shown, plastic covers are chipped and cracked and faded, main needle is broken (it moves but it is not as long as it should be). The cabinet has some finish wear and extra paint specks, hardly any rust though. The unit powers on and I got a tube to light up and the meter moved, however the fluorescent light behind the sign doesn't work, I installed a new bulb and a new starter so it is probably the ballast. Notice there are a couple cracks in the sign, the lettering is also weak from age don't wipe it with a cleaner or anything or it will smear off. The cabinet door is missing the locking latch so it doesn't stay closed all the way, this would be fairly easy to add as I believe it is a standard size, or you could easily rig up a magnetic catch. The cabinet has four drawers, they all work though one is a bit bent and stiff and another is missing a roller wheel. There are 6 pages of tube charts on 3 panels, there is also a page 7 that is loose that is included, there is no frame for it to go in though. The base of the top section is missing three of the rubber bushings that drop into holes in the top of the cabinet to keep it centered in place, it's heavy enough it stays in place fine as it is though.
