Very early coin piano from the Automatic Musical Instrument Company, predecessors of the famous Link Piano Company
This is a very early coin piano manufactured by the Automatic Musical Instrument Company of Binghamton, NY in about 1901. The Automatic Musical Instrument Company was a very early entry in the American coin piano field, establishing business in about 1900. Since the coin piano business didnt reach its peak until the 1920s, coin pianos from the early 1900s were not built in substantial numbers and are exceedingly rare today. This piano is made of nice mahogany wood, and its original, beveled glass front is still in perfect condition. It plays an A type music roll, and these rolls are still readily available today. This piano is complete and all original, and will be restored to like new condition inside and out. Once restored, it will again play by dropping a buffalo nickel in the slot! A matching piano stool is included.
