Just noticed that the 112 appears to have the wrong soundbox?

Thank you all. As always, very helpful. One last question from my side - I have only seen 118s with Black Bands. This one doesn't seem to have black bands but rather the bands are cut into the wood. Could it be a warning sign.

The seller wants 125$ for the machine so maybe I ought to just shut up and grab it...?

The engraved bands are part of the original design, painted in black, this one may have the black paint stripped, but for such very low price is worth buying. I have one of these, with the black band painting gone in some places.

And to answer Marco, there was no other version of this machine, it was made for India, that's why it is not easy to find.

Thank you. What a pity, it's such an interesting machine.
