This is a 1970 Panasonic Toot-a-loop radio model R-72.

From Wikipedia "The Toot-a-Loop Radio or Panasonic R-72 was a novelty radio made by Panasonic Japan in the early 1970s. This radio was designed to be wrapped around the wrist (provided your wrist wasn't too large). It also came with stickers for customizing the unit. Reception was the AM broadcast band only - no FM. Radio was shaped something like a donut with the hole off center. If twisted, the smaller half would pivot and the larger half would separate, forming an "S" shape. One side of the radio had a grill behind which sat the speaker. There was also a jack for a mono earplug. The tuner was located inside one of the "splits" so the radio had to be twisted into the "S" position in order to be tuned, but the volume control was on the outer diameter of the radio and could be adjusted regardless of whether the radio was twisted open or closed."
It measures 7" across and is the inside is marked "Made in Japan RFK 84A-1". _+++++

It runs on a 9 volt battery and I tested it and it works perfectly. The battery compartment is clean and there is no corrosion or rust. Battery is not included.

Condition: There are some small scratches and dings on the case.
