My instrument was installed in 1929 = and the opus number was 2575. I think H&H were boston based. My vox also = only had the opus number, but it was on all the pipes, not just CC. = Construction was with a cap that could be rotated to vary the voicing.   Dave           _________________________________________________________________ MSN Photos is the easiest way to share and print your photos: http://photos.msn.com/support/worldwide.aspx
