Unknown wall box
Unknown Coin-Op Wall Box of Oak
by Bruce Miller (121111 MMDigest)

I have an oak wall box that was very likely for a large orchestrion or nickelodeon.  Long before I got this item, it was apparently disassembled and stripped down to bare wood for restoration.  I have no metal parts or hardware whatsoever for this box -- no mechanism, no door hinges, no coin slot, no wiring, no lock, etc.  All that is there is the oak wall box with door.

The box measures 13" tall, 8-3/4" wide, and 4-1/4" deep.  Can anyone identify this?  I would appreciate any information on this rare item.  I have included a number of photos for the MMD web site.
