  • Hammond B3 ID Plate on eBay for $249.00!

    Just saw a Hammond B3 ID Plate for sale on eBay for $249.00. I put it on my watch list to see if someone actually buys it. I can't believe it's worth more than a couple of bucks, if that.

    Note to self, keep eye out for S/N 90182

      I saw that. Plenty of over priced stuff on eBay... why would someone want one that bad? Nobody steals Hammonds... Right?
      I probably own too many keyboards

        It's probably valuable for the organ counterfeiters to "prove" that a B-style recased A100 actually is a B3

          That might be true if the owner had taken the time to properly remove the nails. As it is, it's a hack job with pieces of the tag missing. Might be a hard one to pass off installed in another organ.....including the original nails might have been a good idea as well.

            its plastic so it's a newer one, probably from the seventies-


            the older ones SOUND better-

              Plastic ID tags go back to the A100 in 1959.
              I had raised eyebrows when I saw a plastic ID tag on a 1963 M3,turns out they are quite common.
              And yes,you could still order an M3 until 1964.

              Weird to see a plastic ID tag and cheek blocks and old style oil funnels on a stock organ.1960 B3.

                best not to support this type of item for sale.. no matter where that tag ends up except on someone's wall or coffee table decoupage is it going to be doing any good. better a B3 is sold with a missing tag than with a fake one.

                  If this organ wsa from the '70s, it would have a letter prefix. A-69, B-70, C-71, etc, until very late when they started up with 6 digits numbers with no logic. My memory may be failing, but i think those last few may have had the "new" printed paper tags, but that might be fake news.

                    Indeed. I don't recall seeing a plastic tag after the E - prefix ones in '73 that wasn't laminated paper.
