Radio of 1950

Postby JohnCox » April 17th, 2014, 12:21 pm

I've posted a story about Houdini's "Radio of 1950" illusion with a great photo of Hardeen doing the trick, showing the inside workings of the "radio" box (I've never seen that before). ... -1950.html

Here's my question. Does anyone know what happened to the Radio of 1950 apparatus? It was put up for sale ($125) after Hardeen's death. Did it sell? Does it sit in someone's collection today? Be great to track this down. It's a lessor known, but still historic piece of Houdiniana.
