Realistic were a brand of Radio Shack / Tandy Corporation.

This was a US made cassette, from the mid to late 70s,  (1973-1977) also widely distributed in Canada.

New Formula oxide coating with super linear response, is Radio Shack’s improved normal bias (type I) tape from their original run.

This value of this tape is basically nostalgic. It is a rare tape if you find them new, never used. However you have to know where you are putting your money. These tapes were sold to me unsealed. They were housed inside a 12-tape cardboard box (I forgot to take a picture of it), but no plastic wrapper on them. The two types I am selling here have been inspected and verified to be new, never used. I also took the liberty of sealing them afterwards, as per the pictures. The reason is simple, it will keep the tape inside better protected from dust and other elements. This tape is roughly 45 years old. You should not expect that it would perform as well or be as good as a tape produced a decade or two later or especially when compared to some of the new fresh tapes. This is a nostalgic collector's prize.

NOTE: Last one! These came with a small round sticker to hold them shut and were distributed and sold with no plastic wrappers. I sealed them to protect the tape from outside elements and prevent the case from getting scratches and dirt. Not visible in these pictures.
