	and it might be a real sleeper.  I believe it has a Standard brand
	player action.  Act fast, this guy wants the bits gone -- or the
	whole piano gone (the ideal rescue).  There's also a grand player
	in the listing that the owner has dropped the price on.

	In Orangeburg, NY: Link Style E nickelodeon with piano, xylophone and
	mandolin attachment.  Original finish & original decals on quarter-sawn
	oak veneer, with original roll winder and its resting brackets.  New
	strings, new hammers, and the player unit has been fully rebuilt.
	The original keys and coin equipment is still with it.  Incl. 7 recut
	multi-tune rolls (15 songs per roll); a super time capsule machine.

	Lots of pianos to adopt: some free ones, a few music boxes, one
	nickelodeon (well, actually it's a "Quarterolian") and some working
	reproducing pianos.

	In going through the previous F/S listings sent me for comments,
	I ran across this piano that is about to be dismantled and turned
	into an art object.  The piano is an upright player that was rebuilt
	recently by Duffy Player Piano Co. in Palisades Park, New Jersey.
	It looks to be a bookmatched burl walnut case.  The piano has some
	issues; I see one keytop (plastic keytops) missing.  It has round
	column legs, and matching corner fronts and top panel framing.
	Griffith used Standard brand player actions.  The ad indicates this
	piano is _free._  This could be a simple project, considering it has
	been professionally rebuilt recently, and it looks too good to see
	it dumped.  Save this Piano!  (MMD version of the National Trust's
	"This Place Matters".) 

	In Edmonds, WA, offered by MMDer Spencer Chase, "a batch of 25 original

	was $12,000, now make offer.  This 1918 Knabe upright Amphion Ampico
	was restored in 2001 by Norman Hall.  I don't know how much piano work
	was done but it does have a new set of hammers.  Comes with 61 rolls
	but only 4 are Ampico.  An Ampico mechanism restoration itself would
	cost over $3,000; Knabe pianos are excellent instruments.  Owner will
	send video of it playing if requested. 

	In Boston, MA area: Crown player piano, free.  Studio upright dated
	1934(?).  Needs tuning and repairs (!).  Oh well, the price is right.

	30 rolls, $500.  65-note spinet in good condition, needs tuning.

	made in 1960s, traditional tunes and a Christmas roll. 

	In Worchester, MA: Player piano, free.  65 note spinet, "needs work,
	still plays."  I notice one key down, could be a simple fix. 

	In Aliso Viejo, CA (Orange County): Player piano, $200.  1970s spinet
	with "large box of music."  Needs work, case looks nice, bench included. 

	In Long Beach, CA: 1907 Aeolian player piano from Sherman Clay and Co.,
	$300.  Upright, "tracking mechanism needs repair" owner notes that it's
	out of tune so it sounds like an like a piano right out of an Old West
	saloon.  Hmmm; but it's a working player.  No photos or other notes.
	Sherman Clay was a large West Coast piano dealer and put their decals
	on many instruments. 

	In Tarzana, CA: Piano player, excellent working condition $400 obo;
	upright black Hauschildt piano player with bench seat and 30 rolls.
	Made in San Francisco probably about 1911, electric and pedal.
	No photos inside, but transposing control looks like Simplex. 

	In Poway, CA (San Diego area): Aeolian player piano $100.  Being sold
	by a St. Michaels Thrift Shop, they have no rolls, so can't test it.
	Appears to be a 1970s console. 

	In La Jolla, CA: QRS player piano rolls, $50.  24+ almost all recent
	rolls, nice variety of tunes. 

	In La Mesa, CA: player piano, $995.  Universal player console with
	stain glass panels; estate sale, sale deal requires estate approval.
	Universals usually have bad Perflex pouches; however, there is Gold
	Coast pianos in the area who specializes in rebuilding these.  (I've
	had him do two for me; he can do it faster and cheaper than I can.)
	Cost is about $1,200 for new pouches, valves and recovered pneumatics,
	so consider this when looking at the piano.  Once rebuilt, they are
	fine players.

	piano. It has a radio built in that is not working. The case is dark
	mahogany. It is called a Modeska and was built by the Janssen Piano Co.

	reason I'm listing this is because of the description: "Purchased in
	England" and appear to mostly be Full Scale Themodist and Metrostyle.

	to list, so "Watch this Space!"

        Free player piano!  My neighbors appear to have put an old player piano
        in the alley up for grabs.  I know nothing of the condition or working
        order (and apparently didn't take a picture; it might be nothing left
        with this weather!

	Milton upright player piano, $700; circa 1915, with 75 rolls. Needs

	piece of junk. No, we won't deliver it. It does have an interesting
	history.  Please somebody help me get rid of this beast!"  The one
	picture shows a plain case in ribbon grain mahogany.  I wonder what
	constitutes "an interesting history" -- was it used in a speakeasy?

	Hamilton Player Piano (non-working) and over 70 rolls.  The piano is
	free but the rolls are $5 each or best offer.  Piano has book matched
	burl walnut case, appears refinished, replaced keytops, Manualo action;
	one pedal disconnected; in basement so removal will be difficult.

	A vintage "apartment" grand player piano for $75, 1920s Schultz
	"Marionette" 3'8" 73-note keyboard; unrestored, dual spindle legs.
	A very small grand, it was marketed as "Tomorrow's Piano Today."
	Chipped ivories, two notes stuck down.  This does have the rather
	complex Schultz player mechanism (mini bellows instead of pouches).

	owner requires professional movers to remove.  Player condition is
	unrestored; has been used as a practice piano for 25 years,

	13 pin-end piano rolls $75, one photo.

	edge fraying).  Yellow-painted case.

	Steinway XR grand piano (equivalent of Model M), $7,000 or best offer.
	Seller is granddaughter of original owner, piano in storage.  The only
	picture is of very ornate custom legs.

	Steck Pianola baby grand player piano, $3,200.  Triple leg case, with
	100 rolls (picture shows 88-note rolls).  The roll box is above keys so
	it's likely a Duo-Art. Maintained, working.

	Pianos, $200 each; "too many pianos, must move" (1) Stark, no details,
	(2) Walter R. Bage, quarter-cut oak case (3) Baby grand, no details,

	Here's the latest "Goodies" on the Internet; some roll cabinets and
	quite a few free pianos (a sad commentary on the piano market
	nowadays).  Go forth and rescue!

	Hardman-Duo spinet player piano for sale $600 OBO from 1970s,
	"Works great. May need some tuning" includes 2 boxes of rolls.

	New price!  Knabe grand piano with Ampico player system by dealer

	72 Player piano rolls and hutch $100; Rolls are old, roll cabinet
	is plain.

	H. C. Bay upright "Solo Concerto", free.  Looks like about 1920
	(H.C. Bay didn't do players before 1915) Unique player mechanism
	by H C Bay.  Bookmatched burl, finish looks good.

	Free Player Piano, no photos, owner was going to rebuild player and
	gave up, some rolls too.

	"The Sting" Player Piano, over 90 rolls, $75.  Aeolian product of the
	1970s, usually with ornate leaded-glass windows case, this one is in
	a plain wood case.  Rolls all appear to be QRS red boxes (except for
	some Christmas rolls.

	Free player piano, Hardman Peck spinet, 1960s (seller thinks older)
	needs some work (might be the plastic valve blocks, but could just
	be supply hoses).  Large box of rolls included.

	Handyman Special: free player piano, Armstrong upright, plain case,
	appears the bottom leg may be loose from the case; player looks like
	Standard, but could be Aeolian.

	Free player piano: "We want to give away a free player piano to 
	a good home and we have a box of rolls music."  No pics, it could be
	anything, even a reproducer perhaps?

	Euphona Inner-Upright Piano $300.  Owner claims 1914, big padlock
	on keyslip on right end, no detail photos.  Ribbon-grained mahogany
	unrestored (but an easy player to restore; all glued joints are
	gasketed, so they come apart easily).

	Valentine player piano works well with over 100 rolls. $570.  Only one
	dark pic, can't tell much except upright with bench.

	Huge collection of player piano music rolls $1 or ??  "Huge" as in
	about 60 rolls, some Christmas rolls, most look to be red box QRS.
	"Make an offer" (so the $1 is per each??  Not explained.)

	Working player piano $300 Upright with "many" rolls.  "Playtona
	mfd. for Grinnell Bros."  Player unit is either Lester or Aeolian.
	"A working antique player piano with many rolls of music and some
	spare parts if ever needed."

	Looks like an untouched piano.

	1918 Hammond upright player piano $200;  plain style, burl bookmatched
	case, likely mid-teens; missing two ivories, untouched.

	Lindeman & Sons player piano + rolls, price ???  Crazy deal -- has 50

	upright piano.  Case has been refinished, piano (& player) untouched.

	Player piano + rolls $125; modern (1970s) spinet & bench, working!

	Quite a few free ones, a number of 1970s-80s spinets, too, and some
	piano rolls -- one deal on some Welte rolls!

	Detroit suburbs, Mount Lyon. MI.  $375 player piano, spinet Pianola.
	Typical 1970s spinet with standard action, plays, includes 100 rolls,
	appear to mostly be red box QRS.  Walnut finish with some nice leaf
	overlays, includes bench.

	Lot of 6 piano rolls, Euclid, OH.  $30 for this lot.  The ad states,
	"We picked up a large lot of used player piano rolls," so maybe you can
	do a deal, as this lot in my opinion isn't worth $30, although one roll
	is a Vocalstyle with a neat leader.

	Another free piano in Redford, IL.  Linderman & Sons, photo shows 1920s
	plain case, looks untouched, with bench, free!  Linderman used four
	different player actions, most commonly Standard, but also Amphion,
	Angelus, and Pratt-Read.

	In Greenville, NC, free Kohler and Campbell spinet player piano, looks
	like 1970s. Electric & pedal.

	Liberty Township, OH, $500; Kimball upright, light finish, includes
	200 rolls.  Appears to still play. Kimballs are good pianos, but they
	used a brass rail for the hammers and dampers which can need repair.
	I've seen them both in fine shape and also seen them having metal fatigue.
	I would check for loose hammers or dampers, the brass damper plates
	are now made of unobtainium.  (I have a Kimball in my shop right now
	and I'm scrounging for the damper plates!)

	In Mainville, OH, no price listed: Universal Player piano, must pick up,
	built in the 1970s.  The Universal player action was a good design but
	used Perflex pouches, most of them are shot today and need to be replaced.
	It's tricky as the stack is aluminum and the pouches are held in with
	plastic rings.  I know one shop that does this for around $1,500 plus
	shipping.  No pictures, but usually have interesting cases.

	Welte owners -- here's a deal; wish I lived closer!  Virginia Beach, VA, $100.
	Over 100 rolls, some are Welte, some are QRS; not enough pictures to
	tell what percentage of each.

	Yorktown, VA, $295: 1972 Kimball spinet, one owner, downsizing.
	Electric motor drive, so check that it's working before buying!  With
	"box of songs."

	Waukee, IA, $20.  Beautiful quarter-sawn oak case, 1920s Norris & Hyde
	upright, been in family 60 years, needs full rebuilding.  The firm used
	three action types; it's most likely a Simplex (one of my favorites),
	includes Larry Given's book!

	Burlington, IA, $500 or best offer: Baldwin Manulo upright (1920s) with
	bench.  Looks untouched, I think it's bookmatch burl walnut, though!

	It looks like some interesting finds this time, especially if you want
	a player for a small house!

	This time we have pianos and rolls from the East Coast to the West Coast,
	with a few interesting gems, including a player with an "O" roll spoolbox.

	In Dunwoody, GA, for $500, a BH Dunwoody player, pump & electric upright
	circa 1912.  No pictures.  "Motor and lights work, music included.
	Very heavy." (I guess some folks don't realize that.)

	West Knox, TN, "Make offer."  Upright player, works.  No pictures.
	"You can get a work-out playing it too!  Downsizing and it's got to go
	so someone else can enjoy it."  Includes bench and 65 rolls.

	Downers Grove, IL, $699.  A 1960s vintage "Hardman Duo player piano
	with piano seat & many player rolls" that's been in family since new.
	The rolls appear to be mostly from the 1920s and '30s, the piano looks
	nice, with dark mahogany finish.

	Elk Grove Village, IL, $300.  "Selling player piano (1908) in family
	for 108 years.  We are downsizing, also 40 piano rolls.  Paid $1,750
	for a few new keys and refinishing 12 years ago.  Must pick up by
	November 16 as I am moving."  Pictures on request, so I don't know...

	Northwest Chicago, IL.  Over 75 player piano rolls in great condition,
	price reduced to $75 OBO."  Various rolls, 13 pictures so you can
	browse; everything from red box QRS to stuff from the 'teens.

	Silverton, NJ.  Free Stroud Duo-Art upright "Style 600P Duo-Art
	Pianola 96226", which puts it at 1930, very late (owner thinks it's
	1906).  Looks untouched except the front feet and legs are gone, the
	bottom front of the case shows flaking (moisture).  But it _is_ a Duo-Art.
	It would be a project, but the legs can be remade; just be careful,
	it's not going to be stable without those legs.

	Now here's an oddity, and the price is less than the "O" roll spool
	frame someone has put in it.  Heck, the one roll included is worth the price!

	South Lakeland, FL, $75.  Beckwith upright piano, quarter sawn oak,
	ivory keys.  Beckwith pianos were sold by Sears, very solid pianos.
	I'm familiar with them and can't believe the O roll Frame would fit,
	but there it is!  "The piano works and was in tune when I purchased it."

	Atlanta, GA, $300.  Modello piano (built by D H Baldwin), quarter-sawn
	oak case, original finish, 1920s case styling.  No pictures of interior.
	Looks to be in a garage right now.  Might be a sleeper!

	Out to the West Coast now:

	San Marcos, CA, $250.  "Player Piano, excellent and updated"  "Player
	piano, brown.  Great condition, recently put $3500 into this, but need
	to move.  Will show images if requested"

	Clairmont, CA, Free player piano, one picture, appears to be bookmatched
	burl walnut, light finish.  "Beautiful piano, sad to see it go but want
	it to go to a good home.  I have a bunch of rolls I will sell." Tracker
	bar appears nickel-plated, can't tell much else.  Case style is circa 1920.

	Well, that's it for now -- go forth and rescue!

    Once again we are faced with pianos and related items to save! This
    list starts out with the elusive piano roll cabinet and includes an
    upright Steinway that might be the deal of the group (if the Welte
    were cheaper, I’d call it the deal, but I’m not impartial when comes
    to Weltes!).

    Player piano roll cabinet --
         In Yorkville, IL, $225. plain (Craftsman?) case roll cabinet,
	 reddish wood.  “Comes loaded with piano rolls”, a wide variety;
	 about 1/4 are red box QRS, looks like all (180?) are 88-note rolls.

    1920s Welte Mignon baby grand player piano --
        Ocean Township, NJ, $3,000.  Very late Welte in need of full
	restoration, but the piano part has been maintained.  “Scrolls come
	with this sale” tells  you they aren’t player folks!  Unusual
	spoolbox above  the keys, ornate legs and matching bench. Very
	unusual design, small grand (5-1/2 foot?).

    Lorraine player piano ca. 1923 --
        Manakin, VA, just west of Short Pump, VA 23013, $500.  Upright,
	pretty light wood case, same owners for 90 years.  Working foot
	and electric pump, including bench and “dozens” of rolls.  A
	unique make, the factory was owned by the Field Lippman piano
	stores in the Midwest.

    Lowrey console player piano --
        Jacksonville, NC, $500. Nice looking typical 1970s Lowrey with
	bench and 20+ rolls. Apparently works but needs tuning.

    Henderson upright player piano --
        Northbridge, MA, $200. Burl walnut case, might be really nice
	when refinished, mid-1920s, Standard Player action.  “I have boxes
	of scrolls.”

    Steinway Duo-Art Pianola upright player piano --
        South Park, ME; $650. 1920 build (by serial number), original
	finish, Craftsman case, looks like new hammers, dampers, but not
	strings, although the strings look very clean, as does the harp
	finish.  “Plays, but needs some adjustments.” Steinways do hold
	their value!

    Standard Duo Art console player piano --
        Webberville, MI,  $100. Typical 1970s spinet with Standard Player
	action. “Working, yes it works!” Looks nice.  

    Go forth and preserve!  If anyone purchases one of these gems, let the rest of us know!
