FS: 17-3/4" Calliope Trade Stimulator Music Box
By Bob Smith

For sale: 17-3/4" dual comb Calliope music box, the same as
a Kalliope music box except this one came from France.  It is
a coin-op with a trade stimulator and old hand-written messages
calling out the permit numbers and other bits of info for public
display.

The start and stop points will need some adjusting but the dual
combs appear to be in great condition and it plays quite well.
Included are 17 discs.

The bad part is the case was infested with powder post beetles; the
unit has been fumigated twice; no current activity.  The upholstery
nit fell off a table during the 1995 Los Angeles earthquake.  The
door was ripped off and the glass was broken.

My intention was to build a new black walnut case for it but my
priorities have changed.  There were repairs made before the
earthquake that were poorly done.  It needs a new owner.  Contact me
for more details; if you want me to call you leave a phone number.

Thanks,

Bob Smith
