What does this signify - metal plate on a pre-anchor Hohner

It's not MAD...just stress management:  Antoria: 3-Stop A. Hohner 1040-G  Chanson:C. Hohner AD and then there's the workshop.

German is a great language for concocted words from existing words.  My favourite is Feuerundlebensversicherungsgesellschaft.  That’s a fire and life insurance company in English.  Stahl is steel in German, and Stimme is, among other meanings, voice.

Elderly amateur musician hoping to stave off dementia by learning to play the melodeon.  Main instrument a Tommy, also D/G and G/C pokerworks, and a G/C Benny.  A single row 2 stop Hohner, and a new addition to the free reedery, a well used Hohner c-system chromatic button accordion.

Indeed. At best it would be written: "Feuer- und Lebensversicherungsgesellschaft".

Well that’s what my German teacher taught me circa. 1963

Then, if German plurals form in the same way as (Scottish) Gaelic ones... "Stahlstimmen" is equivalent to "Steelvoices" ( Gaidhlig=> Guthan Stailinn)

And in another continental European language ( don't know which one ) "Voces de Bronze" (brassy plate on my most recent aquisition in AD) gives me  Guthan Umha / Voices of Bronze.

So what national market was "Voces de Bronze" aimed at?

The Spanish-speaking market would be a fair size, I'd guess - most of Central and South America, to start with..........
