Sonny Terry Estate Harmonica - Marine Band # 180-81 Key of D
Marine Band 1896
Key of D
Original Box Included
This harmonica appears to be new and unused. It is likely a harmonica that Sonny acquired toward the tail end of his career. It is a mint condition Hicksville Era Marine Band and it plays well. Many of the harmonicas in Sonny's collection show very heavy signs of use and do not play well. This Marine Band in D is on the opposite end of the spectrum. Potential buyers who have an interest in both owning AND playing a Sonny Terry harmonica would value this instrument. While it is accurate to state that this instrument is a part of Sonny's Estate and will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, it would not be accurate to state that it was played in any of the recordings we are fond of listening to.
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.
