OSCAR SCHMIDT 36 STRING AUTOHARP 1948 # 73 WITH CASE, STRING TIGHTENING TOOL, PICK, INSTRUCTIONS AND EPHEMERA. The serial number is 5809 which is located on the back of the harp. This rare vintage 71 year old harp has 36 strings which are in great shape and tight. The only damage is that the harp has a hairline in the front center, hard to see. I am not an autoharp expert, this looks to be in excellent condition, I don't see anything else wrong with it except some dust and some wear to the paper at the bottom. The sides, bottom and back are real nice as well as the paint. The bar buttons and the felt underneath is great. Even has the feet to protect the back when sitting on a table. Though it plays I am not sure if it plays correctly or in tune. Has the instructions and other musical paper plus the string tightener and a pick. The case is nice and complete, looks to have had some water damage at one time. It does have light wear but, the hinges and latches all work, it is 24 inches long X 12.5 inches at it's widest point. The handle is excellent. The case has really protected this harp for the last 70 years. I have another autoharp listed on CL. Just enter my phone number into the central jersey search bar to see it.
