Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Marine Band #220-21
Marine Band 1896 #?ÿ220-21
Adamƒ??s Gussowƒ??s Notes: ƒ??Heavy wear. ?ÿCover plates beat up. ?ÿUpper notes (9 draw) are flat."
I love this harp. ?ÿIt has everything you could ask for in a collectable Sonny Terry harp. ?ÿThe covers have a nice half-moon semi-ciccular tarnish from Sonny's lips. ?ÿThe covers are slightly crushed from Sonny's hands. ?ÿIt is clean. ?ÿI only see a little bit of crust on the inside of the comb. ?ÿThe 9 draw is indeed flat as Adam says, but it does not sound broken to me - just something stuck in there. ?ÿA bit of dried saliva or debris perhaps. ?ÿOther than that, it is very playable. ?ÿFor what it is supposed to be - a piece of history?ÿthat has been played extensively by Sonny but you can still play it yourself, it doesn't get much better than this.
This harmonica does not include 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
