Well, I don't know, for sure.

Is that an R-274D/FRR?  Made by Hallicrafter?

I was basing the place of Origin on the Phila after the order number, and the
year built by the 49.  My besdt guess would be, that your receiver was built
on the 3rd week of July, in 1949.  But, as I said - that's a guess.  I'm hoping
someone here KNOWS.
