Marine Band 1896 # 186-87
Key of E
Adamƒ??s Gussowƒ??s Notes: ƒ??A lot of wear.?ÿ Perfect chords. 8 blow a little flat.?ÿ Very Goodƒ??
If you are looking for a harp from this collection that show obvious signs of use by Sonny, this is a great choice.?ÿ It has all the signs.?ÿ The covers are starting to get that half-moon semi-circular tarnish consistent with extensive play.?ÿ Both the top and bottom covers are slightly crushed by The Masterƒ??s Hand.?ÿ The tips of the tines protrude slightly which is a common occurrence with the unsealed pear wood combs.?ÿ In spite of that the reed plate nails are still tight.?ÿ The two cover plate nails at the front of the harp near the 10 hole are slightly loose.?ÿ All the reeds play well.?ÿ None are broken or stuck.
This harmonica includes the original box.
The harmonica will be shipped in an attractive shadow box display case, a framed 8X10 glossy black and white photo of Sonny and an individually signed Certificate of Authenticity.?ÿ
