The only knowledge I have is what the son of the deceased owner has told me. He stated the following to me: "The main part of the organ is a rank 5 manuel Mighty Wurlitzer Theater Pipe Organ. The ranks include Tibia, Vox, Trumpet, Flute, and memory fails on the fifth rank. There is a borden rank for the pedals. This part of the organ came from the Logan Theater in Logan Ohio. ...he continues his father also aquired a glockinspiel and an xylaphone from Robert Morton Pipe Organ, a "yoy counter" (various sound effects actuated by pedal buttons) from the McVicors Theater in Chicago, and a set of chimes, and bordon pipes for pedals from a local Tennessee theater."   The organ is in a fair state of repair. Could you please direct me to how I could find someone that might be interested in this organ. I am sending this email in hopes that someone might have a use for this rare instrument.   Thank you, charles Dyer charlesdyer@hotmail.com   *****I inquired as to the location. His answer:*****   The organ is located in Kingsport, Tennessee. Charles Dyer 101 Jefferson Avenue Mt. Carmel, TN 37645   my office: 423.357.8888 my Home: 423.378.4212   It will have to be removed in about 30 days, if possible. thank you for your reply, cd.   *****This sounds like a Special "B" Wurlitzer. If I am correct the fifth rank is a string. Nice little instrument. I've got one.*****   Don Peterson
