Identifying Pianola or Orchestrion Music Rolls
By Jacques Thijs

Years ago I bought a box with around 40 old rolls, in good condition.
I always supposed that these are pianola rolls, since I did not know of
the existence of orchestrion rolls.  I thought orchestrions always used
cardboard books.  Since I want to sell these rolls it is important to
know for which instrument they are intended.  How can I see if they are
for a pianola or for an orchestrion?

 [ Richard Vance contributed much data about rolls for American pianos
 [ and organs.  We still need much more information about orchestrion
 [ rolls and European music rolls.  -- Robbie
