    I also have a Sanders with Wolfstein, Pfaltz stamp, has three rotary valves, and is silverplated. Could not find a serial number just that stamping on the Bell. Thought it might have been produced in the late twenties early thirties. Purchased it from Moolah Shrine in St Louis Missouri in 1977. Still plays well.

Please also include measurements of the height and bell diameter. Include all of this information in an email to Vincent Simonetti at Thank you!
