Yet another Lachenal SN dating

Recommended Posts

Hoping you can shed some light on this one:

 20  Key G/C, plastic buttons, brass reeds. "Lachenal & Co."

Serial number as displayed indicated 51799,  but carefully peeling back the material holding the label,

 is a hidden leading "1"  (I think it's a 1)

Thanks for being here here for us.

Mike

If the serial number were 51799, it would have been made circa 1878. No 46951 was sold in January 1878. I think they were making abour 5200 Anglos per year at that time. But it appears thay your number is 151799, which was made circa 1896. In the 1890s "heyday" of Lachenal Anglo production, they were making about 6500/year.
