Strange Hohner?/possible ebay scam
« on: June 03, 2018, 01:52:23 AM »

Never seen a Hohner like this.  Looks like a Galotta with an upside down Hohner badge....

Also, why is the listing in German with an item location of Redwood Falls Minnesota???

The instrument does have rather an "East-German imitation of late 1940's/early 1950's Italian" sort of a look to it, with hints of Busilacchio, et al., perhaps...

But I wouldn't be worried about the seller, whose feedback is nearly all in German. Maybe they're German but living in the USA, and selling German collectable items to Germany?
