WWII Navajo Code Talker TBY-4 Radio Transmitter-Reciver


Recommended Posts

Recently Picked up this Radio at the flea market, I had a couple of questions about it. What would the value of this Transmitter- Reciver be worth. I was also under the impression that the navajo code talkers used this early model. This is not my area of expertise, so any information would be great.

Nice looking radio. Looks to be in great shape. I can't speak to whether or not they were used by Navajo Code Talkers without checking further but after looking at the descriptions in some of those that were sold it's been described as being used by them.


Here's some values from Price It! Antiques & Collectibles taken from Ebay and auction houses that might give you an idea.


Specific areas of collecting and buying interest:

WWI/WWII 40th (Sunshine) Division, Camp Kearny, Camp Harry Jones, WWI/WWII 158th Infantry, USS Oklahoma, Pearl Harbor Survivors Association, Mexican Border (1916),

Norman Air Technical Training Center (NATTC) Norman, OK, Tinker Field or AFB, Submariner Items, Knives, Bayonets, Sweetheart Jewelry, other unique

or odd items with interesting stories.
