One of the most elegant radio cabinet designs, this Belmont 526 has been marketed under other brands including Goodyear, Truetone, and Coronado. The radio is a transformer powered 5-tube AM superheterodyne enclosed in a nice cabinet that is symmetric from front to back and was offered in different cabinet colors including black or walnut bakelite as shown in this example, and also in ivory plaskon. The cabinet style was also used in other similar models such as the Belmont 602 with an airplane dial in place of the vertical slide rule dial and pushbuttons seen on the model 526.
