A really gorgeous Toshiba radio, with a black reverse-painted area displaying a gold-colored slide rule tuning dial, one of the few Toshiba vertical shirt pocket radios to make use of a slide rule dial. Another was the 1958 6TP-219. The "TRANSISTOR" lettering above the dial is followed by the dial numbering in the same strong capital font.
