7-valve broadcast receiver - as typical with Pacific, no chassis identifier but the layout is identical to a Courtenay model 140. First seen in advertising Sept 1933.
Intermediate Frequency: 175kc/s
Chassis Notes: Seen in the Courtenay 140 with a peephole dial and the Pacific 140 with an arc dial (possibly a later model using an existing chassis with a more modern dial assy).
General Construction Notes for Radio Corporation of New Zealand Ltd: The first digit of the serial number typically indicates the year of manufacture of RCNZ chassis' (although not the decade - that requires a little knowledge of the valves, construction, etc). Sets from around 1934 onwards were often (but not always) constructed in a distinctive pressed 'baking pan' style chassis, seemingly unique to RCNZ.
