Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Golden Melody Item #99 Key of C
Hohner Golden Melody
Key of C
Original Box Not Included
This is one of the harmonicas that the estate sent to Adam Gussow for appraisal. His notes are as follows: Moderate wear. 7-blow slightly flat. Very good.
As Adam states in his evaluation, this harp shows moderate signs of wear. The covers are worn as is the comb. I am noticing an interesting pattern as I evaluate the Golden Melodys. The backs of the combs, at the bass end of the harp, are pretty chewed up. My guess is that this is from rubbing against the microphone. So here we have another way of determining use. This harp may not be as stained or crushed as some of the others in the collection, but the back of the comb shows that Sonny used this harp a lot.
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.
