Up for sale is a fine rare Beolit 1000 radio from Bang and Olufsen. This radio was purchased from seller Jepsen57, who restores these radios and sells them on . Check out his sales for further examples (search Beolit on ). This sale includes an extremely rare accessory, almost never seen on : the Beopower 1000 mains adapter. This is basically a converter for mains power for the Beolit. If you are in the US, you will also need a voltage converter, but you will be one of the very few people around with one of these. This is one of the finest transistor radios ever made. A true collectors item. Even more so with Beopower.
Here's a copy from Jepson57's description from when I purchased it:

In 1972 the Museum Of Modern Art in New
York chose seven of Bang & Olufsens products designed by Jacob
Jensen to be included in their design collection as representing
excellent examples of the Museum's criteria for quality and historic
importance, design, in fact, which had influenced the twentieth century,
Beolit 1000 was one of those seven products.
In 1968 Beolit 1000 won the prestigious IF Design award."
