MK Mauer, Larson vs. Martin (5) Maurer, Larson vs. Martin 27 Sep 00

I'd be very interested in any information the "guitar nerds" here can shed on differences and similiarities in terms of construction, bracing, materials used, playability and tone in comparing models issued by Maurer, the Larson Brothers and Martin in and around the period from 1915 to 1930.

I have occasionally noticed that vintage Maurers and Larson models from this time period sell for about the same as Martins. How do they sound and play, compared to Martins, and are they considered worthwhile investments, as opposed to purchasing comparable Martin models from the same period?
