Now, here's another technologically odd bird from the 1950's. The Cossor 543 used a ferrite rod aerial and printed circuit board and yet was much cheaper than rival models by Ever Ready (and certainly more stylish).

It has an external appearance similar to that of the PAM 'Pixie' and Invicta 'Vicki' models and is rather attractive.
