Marine Band 1896?ÿ #226-27
Key of B
Adamƒ??s Gussowƒ??s Notes: ƒ??Moderate wear.?ÿ Chords are sour.?ÿ Melodies sound nice.?ÿ Fair/Good Condition.ƒ??
This Marine Band shows some signs of wear.?ÿ The covers are a bit dull, as in not shiny - but there is no half-moon semicircle of tarnish that is present on some of the other harmonicas in the collection.?ÿ One of the cover plate nails is a little loose which is very common in older Marine Bands.?ÿ The comb has a couple of little nicks and dings which just make it all the more apparent that the harp was played.?ÿ All the reeds play well although according to Adam, the chords are bit rough.?ÿ In terms of how the harmonica plays, I would defer to Adamƒ??s rating as Fair/Good.?ÿ However, in terms of physical condition, I would rate this harmonica Excellent.?ÿ
There is no box included with this harmonica.
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
