Up for auction today is one Fairly Old Hohner model 1896 Harmonica.First off let's start with the harmonica. The sound is Great. All holes make sound and it all sounds correct, at least to my ear. It is in the key of C.  This really is a nice sounding harmonica.  When compared to newer versions this one sounds much better.Has a deeper richer sound. All fasteners are in place and tight. The shiny cover plates are in great shape. No Dents, No Rust, No Squished spots. As you look at pictures you well notice these cover plates are a different configuration than newer models. Also on cover plate Among Other things it states U.S.A. Patent AUG. 24th 1897. This is on the side that also says Marine Band  M. Hohner and has a picture of Hohner and the letter C. C is the key of this Marine Band Harmonica. Now I  don't think this harmonica was made that long ago. Reason for that is, on bottom of box is a label that among other things states Awarded Highest Honors San Francisco Exposition 1915.  So, it would have been made sometime from 1915 on. This harmonica also has small star in middle of trade mark so it definetly is ,at the least, pre 1939. I really think it was made closer to 1915. Holes are numbered left to right 1 thru 10. I don't know if you can tell from pictures, but  there is some very slight damage to wood body in front of holes 4, 5,6 looks like somebody was draging a tooth across it.There is also minor paint loss and the usual small scratches from years of use. Really minor stuff for a harmonica that easily could be 9
