An interesting Hurdy Gurdy, mostly because of what is has and does not have. It never had a wheel cover, as seen by lack of cover holders. It does, however, have return springs on the tangents and that cute door on the side of the scroll. There is also that tuning peg near the left F hole. The back is in very decent condition with no cracks. Missing parts include two drone bridges, end wall of tangent box and two small bone or Ivory pieces used as string guides at lower edge...
