HMV 495BC 'LITTLE NIPPER'

Manufactured for His Master's Voice (New Zealand) Ltd by Various in 1949.

5-valve broadcast model. Two versions that look very similar, but one has a reversed dial (low frequency on right instead of left).

The Collier & Beale version was also sold as the Pacemaker 519P

Valves (5): 7S7, 7B7, 7C6 (or 6AQ6 ?), 7C5, 7Y4

Intermediate Frequency: 455kc/s

Chassis Notes:

At least 2 chassis variants - one of which has Philips(?) style IF cans, a miniature valve in the lineup, a different tuning cap (and reversed dial) and other differences like the orientation of the tone switch - probably one set built for HMV by Philips NZ while the other (main version) is Collier & Beale. Both sighted models have 'Manufactured by H.M.V. (NZ) Ltd'.
