Lauter Piano Serial Numbers & Manufacture Dates
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All, After going through all of the data that was found in
Bob Pierce's old files from the 1950s, the publisher of Pierce Piano
Atlas found the listing below.  From all of the data I've collected,
this listing appears quite accurate.  It matches almost perfectly
with the plate numbers and patents that were issued.
