Packaging Concert Organ Rollers
By Jack M. Conway

Hi Group,  A question for Richard Dutton and any others that might
know.  I was relocating my collection of Concert Organ rollers today
and I thought of a question that I don't believe I have seen addressed

How were the rollers originally packed for shipping?  Does anyone have
an original container?  Did they come in a cardboard tube like Edison
cylinders?  Did they come in a toothpaste type box like PianoLodeon
rolls?  Did they come in a small piano roll like box?

Were they wrapped in a sheet of paper?  If so, was the paper plain or
printed?  Were they shipped with no protection?  Did anyone make a
storage case for them like those made for cylinder records?  I guess it
is more than one question.

I store mine on end with chipboard dividers between the pins to prevent
damage to the pins.
