Hohner Germany Harmonica Jewish Star of David Nazi era?
This harmonica is no longer for sale (sold on 2011-05-04)
Price : US $39.00
This is a 12 note starter harmonica made by M. Hohner of Stuttgart, Germany that my father gave to me shortly after the end of World War II. It has a Jewish Star of David emblazoned on the chrome cover as a trademark. This Jewish Star does not photograph well but it is clearly visible and is 3/16 of an inch wide. The chrome on the other side of the harmonica has the ''School Band'' name and an indication that it is registered with the US patent office. Since there is no date of manufacture, I do not know whether the Jewish Star indicates that it was a Nazi era but pre-war harmonica made for the US market, or whether it was a post-war harmonica emblazoned with the Jewish Star to indicate it was not made by Nazis! The harmonica plays well for a 12 note and aside from obvious wear looks pretty good. The original box is included.
IMPORTANT: I do not know if this harmonica has Nazi era memorabilia value or not and have no knowledge other than what I have written here. The harmonica is therefore being offered for sale ''as is'' with no further representations and no guarantee. The shipping and handling charge includes insurance at no additional expense.
