I am sure that this topic has come up before but I am having trouble finding an answer to my question;
I have a Jones 26b, mahogany-ended, Anglo numbered 5269 labelled G, Jones, 350, Commercial Rd. It has broad steel reeds and fishtail/bell shaped rivetted action posts. There is no Jones trademark stamped on the instrument.
I am guessing that the address and lack of trade mark narrows the date to between 1874 (post Lucas Place) and 1890 (trademark definately in use) but would appreciate anyone who can pinpoint it further?
Frank Butler's very interesting article about his grand-father suggests that the earliest known Jones Anglo is # 4996........is this correct?
