Never seen one of these until today when I 'happened upon' this at my local flea. So what we have here is an antique ''Made In Germany'' ''''HARMONOPHONE'' in the key of ''G''. This is basically a harmonica with a big ol' cone for amplification. It is patent dated March 13th 1890 and how about that, March 13th is my birthday! Anyway, this little fella' works and sounds great and is in very good shape with typical wear and oxidation from age and use just as pictured. The cone has some little 'dings' on the top edge and slight bends but just what one might expect for a almost 130 year old harmonica with a BIG FAT CONE sticking out of it like a 'cancer'!!! I have read that they are exceedingly rare and in all my years to combing the universe for artifacts I have never once ever seen or even heard of one of these! It was mearly luck that it fell into my hands and now you are at luck that it can fall into yours. Buyer pays priority mail shipping fee of of $9.95. Paypal accepted. PA residents add 6% sales tax.
