    041262 could also stand for April 12. It is very common to place the month first so that numerical order is preseerved in date calculations.

    That’s right Paul, but usually they spell it the other way round in Germany…

    Actually, almost everywhere it’s day-month-year. They (Germans, Japanese, Italians, etc.) have no respect for us Americans and refuse to adopt our customs. But they do make better melodicas, with the exception of Oscar Verdugo’s Diamante Wind Vox.

    I have a “010363” on a recently acquired Professional 36, indicating 1 March 1963.

    Can you tell who the maker of this ancient melodica roja is, Luis?
