Recent lot sold in a local auction, a smart Bush TUG24, band 1 only, never converted. Back panel un-cut. Cabinet good with a little top back edge veneer damage.

Clean tube front, probably put away in the '50s when ITV came on.

Went for £45 plus 20% buyers and vat fee.

Is this around the right price for one of these?

There is a TV24 on auction with a starting price of £95, no guarantee that it will go for that.

I suppose £50-60 will be about right for the TUG24 if it’s complete. Whoever bought it must be happy to pay that price.

I don’t keep up with TV prices so my opinion is probably not worth a lot.

Seems a fair price to me. I've been following an auction of the estate of a hoarder this last couple of days - something approaching a hundred Philips "Electronic Engineer" kits and a *lot* of a particular Grundig portable cassette recorder - the C410 (I've had one from childhood). All were making respectable money so I'd say yes, £45 plus buyer's premium and VAT wasn't a bad price.

I prefer my TUG12 though ?
