Meccano Radio Sets
Meccano made crystal radio sets both in the UK and in the USA. In the UK because of concerns by the GPO, there was both a ready made and a constructional radio set. In the USA there was just a constructional radio set. They were made in both the UK and the USA from 1922 to the mid to late 1920s.
