? CURIOSITY ?

TOM ROTUNNO had some rather intriguing information in one of his letters. He says he bought a Theatre/Recital Schober with three manuals ... AND A SERIAL NUMBER! Schober, of course, never marketed a three manual organ .. but quite a few Schobers have been modified to three, four and, even a few, five manuals ... but this is the first Schober (that I've heard of) with a SERIAL NUMBER? He says it's a "SCHOBER ORGAN CORP." label/tag marked: H-1777. Does anyone else "out there" have a serial numbered Schober organ? In any case - from the limited description Tom was able to furnish - it appears to be a very impressive instrument (I'd love to hear a recording of it!).
