Seeburg "Build-up" Orchestrion Quandary
By Bill Maguire

I have a 1923 Seeburg coin piano with lots of percussion instruments
added.  This was literally a "barn find."  It has an oak case.  The
exterior is badly weathered (veneer damage, broken glass, etc.) with
a few small pieces missing.  The original motor is also missing.
Everything else is there and in very good condition.

I have to do something with the instrument and I'm not sure what.
I'm just wondering if, by chance, anyone has a "spare" Seeburg upright
instrument that might be missing a stack or the piano action that you
may want to sell.

Or perhaps you're interested in buying mine for parts or restoration.
I would consider an instrument trade.  I found out that my action and
stack will fit many Seeburg models.  I have photos available to send.
