FS: Wurlitzer Style 165 Music Rolls
By Matthew Caulfield

I just noticed today that there are thirty-five (count 'em!) Wurlitzer
165 rolls up for auction individually on eBay.  Not one has a starting
bid of over $40, and there are three days or so left to run in the
auction.

There are some really good rolls there and a couple of dogs, but among
the good rolls is a copy of roll 6509-A, one of the oldest -- if not
the oldest -- 165 roll surviving.  When I found it in the collection of
the late Jim Wells, Jim would agree to lend it for copying only on the
condition that I send it to the late Mike Kitner for copying.  Mike
said it was the longest roll he ever handled.  I had to sell the copies
for $125 each.  A Play-Rite copy is now up on eBay for $40 ... and no
bids yet.  A fantastic roll, going unnoticed!  Not all the titles are
identified on the roll label, but you can find them on my 165 roll
