Not exactly lovingly assembled. Not worth restoring in my mind: from the connector to the transformer... gone...gone...gone...

The capsule could need some loving, too. (No, don't use anything mechanical to clean the diaphragms. It will destroy the sputtering!)

Agreed.
However, there are some rather low end parts in there like that blue electrolytic cap, a blue mylar cap, a ceramic disc cap and it looks like either a Jensen or Reichenback transformer. Brown and red wires are Jensen's primary color scheme. Swapping those caps might make it sound a bit more open depending on your confidence in swapping components. The capsule is filthy.

transformer could be a newer Haufe... I've seen them in that type of case.

Agreed with all of the above. The critical bits that make it a "U67" are gone, save for the capsule (which itself isn't in the best of repair, though it could still sound just fine).

It's an oddball, but it's been a useful tool for me.

It's now winging it's way to Peluso Labs for evaluation...

I'll let you know what John says.

Thanks again, everyone, for your interest.

Just remember to not let him touch the capsule with any mechanical means.
