Help Identifying Pin-end Rolls
By Mark Van Essen
|So, Hi there, then! (That's Fargo-ese.)|
I have 16 rolls that are 11.25 inches wide (paper), 6 holes per inch, wood ends with metal pins. (One pointed, one has two tabs pinched in it.) When these roll types are identified, I will post them for sale.
14 are Aeolian, 1 is Lion & Healy, 1 is Connorized. One box has a label from the "Aeolian Music Circulating Library" regarding membership and overdue fees of 2 cents a day. :-)
I am not sure how to state the condition of the rolls. I have unwound a couple of them, and they are in perfect condition beyond the first layer. One roll needs Ironing or something on about the first 12 inches, as it was stored with the paper overlapping the spool end. The labels and tabs are in great condition with no repairs, tape or torn paper.
The boxes are not as good, but are not torn or taped.
