Northern Electric Baby Champ model 5002
Made in Montreal, model year 1946-47
Finally, a 5002 with BC and short-wave bands, and it's factory-painted in blue hammertone, instead of the more common bare brown bakelite model. It's a brother to the model 5000, made in the same year.
eBay purchase June 16/2001 for US $82.00 (approx. C $124.95). This photo is edited from the one the seller posted. I haven't actually received it yet.
