I wonder what units he was referring to in 1931?

I recently came across this piece of paper w/watermarks in such pristine condition, I just assumed it was a few years old and forgot about it.Now that I sit down and read it, I find it probably is original. Date 10/20/10 as in 1910! I can only find that G.C. Aschbach did exist from around 1870-1900 (obviously later due to the date here) It was billed as the "Largest and Oldest Music House in the Lehigh Valley". It was found in an Edison DD C-19.

Are there any links or articles on the "Specialty Prepared Catalogue" showing a list of 500. If so i may need to marry this up with the catalogue.

The C-19 was introduced in the Spring of 1919, so it's odd to find a paper from almost a decade earlier stuck inside. Could have been done by an earlier collector maybe?

In my oak VV-XI, I found a letter stuffed inside the horn, a small crank, a 1967 brochure for a TV antenna, and an advertisement clipped from a newspaper for “Frick’s Phonographs” which was an early parts supplier who apparently made dubious repro parts. Right now I only have a photo of the crank and the ad. The crank actually fits my Columbia q quite well.

Googled "G.C. Aschbach" and got this link: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Cate ... 26_Company. Many other hits for this name as well. Hamilton Street has been undergoing major changes in the last dozen or so years, leaving few of the older buildings on the streetscape. The Aschbach site is a remnant.

I tried googling it, but didn't see that. Great info. thanks. I do believe a previous owner (collector) may have stuck it in there. If I remember this purchase, the owner did have a handful of machines at one time.

I wonder if Frick Phonographs is still around? I know they were listed in the early Compleat Talking Machine.

I don’t think Edison Discs were available as early as 1910. This must be for cylinders.
