For Sale On The Internet

The following links were submitted by our readers. This list will be added to and pruned regularly, as most of these listings will be valid only for a short duration.

From 171003:

In Spokane, Washington, a heavy-duty nickelodeon spool frame,
with transmission gears of Nylon or Delrin:

In Spokane, Washington, a 65/88-note player piano spool box,
mostly complete:

In Spokane, Washington, an unknown box pump with a grease cup
revolving on the pulley hub: 

From 171001:

and so it was converted at the factory to play style "A" rolls
(without a phonograph).  See the original advert of May, 1918, at

From 170930:

For Sale On The Internet -- annotation by John Brzozowski

"Dodge Brothers March" for sale on eBay auction.  It is not rare -- is
is "R-A-R-E"!  I've collected piano rolls for 55+ years and have over

Coast, as the "P-O-P" Filmusic Co. was based in California.

From 170923:

In Concord, Calif., region:  Push-up player in poor condition with
"Imperial" decal; looks like an Aeolian product (London?):

In El Cajon, Calif.: A Lyon & Healy electric player piano with an
Art-Echo (probably) expression system:
