Seek Lauter Piano Company Serial Number Data
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All, I just received a reply to a letter that I sent to Pierce
Piano Atlas concerning the serial number information listed for the
Lauter Co.  As it has been mentioned before in the Digest, the serial
numbers in the Atlas don't line up with things like the patent dates
for a few of the player components or the dates embossed on the Kelly

Pierce has asked me to supply as much information as possible to
correct the errors in the Atlas, so I'm reaching out in the hope of
putting together a simple database of serial numbers and plate dates.

If you have a Lauter or have kept any records of the serial number
and plate date, please send that information to me as soon as possible.
According to Larry Ashley at Pierce, they are currently working on
the next edition of the Atlas and would be grateful for any additional
information.  My email address is
[delete ".geentroep" to reply].
