The first 256A was essentially a model 313A carried over to 1946. 

This radio, updated model 256A-02, was a more modern version with some more common tubes and dry electrolytic capacitors.  It also shares a loudspeaker cloth with typical radios of the mid 1940s, like the BX465A and BX565A.
This example has a dial marked '256A Indonesia'. It features a minimum of transmitter names and was probably meant as a generic tropical dial.
