Chromonica Chromatic

HOHNER SUPER CHRON HARMONICA / there are no markings to date it , how else can idate it?

It is a Super Chromonica Chromatic Harmonica with numbers 1-12 and a 'D' stamped onto the silver cover .On the brass part is stamped 'Dis' near the button.On reverse side on the brass is a 'D'. On the silver cover are a pair of hands with a circle 'GESETZL/ GESCH' .Underneath is written Made in Germany. . Is anyone able to help me .Thanks

12 holes is a model 270 - it's been essentially unchanged for very many years. This model has been around for almost 100 years.

There are markings to date it within about 10 years but you'd generally need an expert collector to sort through them all. For example, a star inside those hands indicates it's before WWII (in Germany) - no star, after. The points on the star, shape of the hands, whether there's a coat/cuff on those hands, etc... all narrow it down more. If the plates are engraved it's newer than if the plates are raised embossing. The color/pattern of the wooden comb finish is a clue too. An original case helps to date them as well, case material and design changed a lot over time. A wooden case would be fairly old - plastic not so much. You'll need a real expert to do much more than "pre war", "post war", "modern" on it though. You can send good, clear, photos to Hohner and they can help but may take some time depending on their resources.

Dis and D are the key of the harp. Pushing the button raises the pitch 1/2 step to D-sharp (Dis in German) from D. The model 270 comes in all 12 major keys.

Don't take it apart! A chromatic harmonica has lots of unique parts that aren't for the novice to be working on. Don't try to clean it (other than wiping it down) either. Check the comb for cracks - these very heavy wooden combs are known to crack easily if not well cared for and that will effect the playability of the harp.

For the sake of curiosity the age is good to know. For value, it's not very helpful. The 270 is one of the most common of the chromatic harmonicas in existence and so the value to collectors is minimal unless it's a VERY early model or a particularly good condition pre-war. Value to players is based on condition and playability remembering that most players won't buy a used harmonica at all because of the difficulty disinfecting one and the "eww factor" of playing after someone else. A brand new one is roughly $175
