Hi All,
I'm just getting back into collecting vintage SW after a 15 years hiatus or so and this site has been a great resource! I recently bought a second loose Rebo Band and noticed a difference between the pianos. The one I've had for about 20 years has no "LFL 1983" stamped underneath and also has a different circle pattern in the center than the one I recently purchased. In addition, the underside of the rectangular part is thinner and has two molding circles instead of one. Lastly, the gold along the outside ring is slightly duller than the other version. I've done some research on Ledy's (didn't know about those 20 years ago!) and some of the description matches the Ledy version. My issue is that the figures that came with the old piano are definitely not Ledy. Anyone know if these were ever mixed from the factory? Possibly tri-logo or some other variant? These have been sitting in a closet for over 20 years after being purchased from the original owner so the set wasn't mixed and matched. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Welcome to TIG VadersWS6 Smile There are two different Rebo organ spray ops across the Can/USA & Trilogo issues - gold and bronze. Not sure about Ledy - especially if you say the figs are def not Ledy and weren't mixed/matched? Stu (Burnsy) has a Ledy Rebo band, Dan as well I think, maybe they can confirm later. If you can post some pics in meantime.
