GUEST,John Help: Autoharp Models: History (109* d) RE: Help: Autoharp Models: History 18 May 14

We have an Oscar Schmidt 15 EBH autoharp. I am trying to find out it's age. We have had it about 30 years. When looking online I see a lot of 15 EBH/R. What's the difference? Distinctive markings on ours are: (1) a white logo in a parallelogram with "Autoharp"/"By Oscar Schmidt"; (2) below the chords, the string tone and octave lettering is in white right on the wood background; (3) the wood is a straight maple color without any embellishments; (4) all metal parts are silver toned bright work; (5) no model designation can be seen through the sound hole. So when was it made? Is it a cheap one or something we can send a kid through Harvard Medical School?
