Unknown Player Action in Haddorff Piano
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  I need your help in identifying a player action in a Clarendon
piano which was manufactured by Haddorff around 1917.  According to my
references, Clarendon only used the Amphion, the Pratt-Read, the
American, or the Standard mechanisms in their players.  However, the
mechanism in the pictures does not appear to be any of those systems.

I have requested that the owner send me a picture of the backside of
the stack.  Hopefully, it will shed a little more light on the matter.

Thanks in advance for any help you may provide.
