I just bought a National Panasonic RS-466FDS, the top of the aerial is snapped off. But it still gets a better FM signal than some of my other boxes. It's weighty, in a good way.
The only issue with mine is that the cassette deck doesn't work. Even though I will never use it if it did. The fat rubber roller (I'm not a technician) doesn't seem to have any tension. It comes down and doesn't move the tape, and you can flick it back up with your finger.
I'll tear it open over the weekend and see what I find.
