Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Golden Melody Item #81 Key of A
Hohner Golden Melody
Key of A
Original Box Not Included
This is one of the harmonicas that the estate sent to Adam Gussow for appraisal. His notes are as follows: Significant Wear. Dented Cover Plate. 4-Draw Flat. Fair.
This harmonica shows signs of extensive use. There is major rust on covers. The bottom cover is slightly crushed from what looks a botched repair job. My guess is someone was trying to pund the cover plate pin back in and missed. The comb is scratched at the back from rubbing up against a microphne. The reed plates are rusted at front. It looks like this was one of Sonny's favorite harps. There is no way of knowing if he kept playing it after it was damaged but he sure played it a lot before.
The harmonica will be shipped in an attractive shadow box display case, and will include an 8X10 glossy black and white photo of Sonny - suitable for framing. An individually signed Certificate of Authenticity and Bill of Sale will also be included.
