"APRCo" Piano Rolls
By Mike Walter

Hi all,  I have recently received a small collection of 88-note rolls,
seven of which are very intriguing.  These seven all arrived without
boxes.  Title information is stamped onto the leader.  The leader
indicates that "APRCo" is the manufacturer in a small circle at the
bottom of the title info.  Perforations are square without much chain
bridging.  Words are stenciled in blue.  The titles are:

  3200 Sometimes I'm Happy / pb Joseph A. Fecher
  3222 C'est Vous (It's You) / (no artist listed)
  3226 Just Like a Butterfly / pb Walter Tierney
  3234 Dew-Dew-Dewey Day / pb Joseph A. Fecher
  3655 I'll Get By / pb Walter Tierney
  3658 Me and the Man in the Moon / pb Annabelle Taylor
  3890 If You Believe In Me / pb Fred G. Seibert

Can anyone share any additional information about the company?

Thanks very much!

Mike Walter
