PLEASE SEE MORE NEAT STUFF IN MY OTHER LISTINGS & EBAY STOREANTIQUE?-VINTAGE HOHNER HARMONICA WITH ORIGINAL BOX
4- key? Tremolo Concert Harp No. 46 1/2
Age?? I think it belonged to my grandfather who died at age 88 in 1964 and I suspect he had had it a long time!
Lid of box reads: ''The Up to Date Very Best Tremolo Concert Harp, No. 46 1/2 Finest Hammered Reeds, Made by M. Hohner, Germany''On back of box is original sticker with description of Hohner factory since 1857 (employing over 4400 men and turning out over 15 million harmonicas per year! - at that time)
On harmonic itself is raised lettering ''Hohner's Best, Hammered Reeds, Made in Germany''Harmonica is 7'' long x 2'' tallIt has two rows of 16 holes top and bottom (total of 64 holes)I know nothing about harmonicas, but am guessing from other descriptions I've read that this one plays in 4 keys - 2 keys top, and 2 bottom. It is very worn (finish is gone at edges), and is showing rust on the metal parts, plus some dents. Yet all the blow holes seem to be intact. I've blown through it and it plays nicely, but I can't guarantee anything about it being on key or working perfectly. You buy this one as an un-guaranteed antique!
The ORIGINAL BOX is VERY WORN - latches are coming off; one end of bottom portion was out when I took photos sometime back, but now both ends are out of the bottom.Nice collector's item if you are into harmonicas! Item was stored in clean box for years, no smoke.
I have had to move in with my 9
