Re: Hohner Penta from 1955

Maybe it's a single harmonica, as described here: https://www.patmissin.com/ffaq/q36.html ? An instrument seems to be intended for early music education without bottom reeds.

Wenzel and M. Häffner https://up.picr.de/38674576od.jpg embossing of the coverplate shown more clearly visible, a...
