Thanks for the information about this radio. I have updated the records based on reviewing what is available on your website, www.vintageradio.co.nz. The only number we have referenced (at this stage) is OGU-54698. We will check this number in the near future. Thanks again!

Does the serial number start with CCU? It looks like an Ultimate CCU from the front, which would make it a 6-valve broadcast band (AM) only radio from the 1936 production year. Ultimate radios were manufactured by Radio (1936) Ltd in Auckland.
