Westinghouse H840CK15 is one of the very first color televisions with the remarkable RCA 15GP22 cathode ray tube.  Above, actual images of the lead actor appearing in the 1948 movie, “The Red Shoes” as seen on this television.

The following list was compiled by the Early Television Foundation as of July 31, 2022.  Vision4 Magazine volunteered to maintain the list going forward because Marlin Mackley’s site was removed from the internet.  As of July 31, 2022, there are 32 known sets, and the highest chassis number on the list is 000819.  We know there are more out there.  Contact us if you would like your set added to this list.
