Welcome @trxlthm428!

The Regulation Band was produced between 1905 and 1952. There were different versions of it (one with a chain, one as a back-to-back version, different cases).

I’m afraid I can’t tell you the exact production period of this model with certainty.

Best regards

It is interesting how many harmonicas were inspired by Brass bands of the day. A time when brass bands were very popular and part of many communities. From there the harmonica, or mouth organ bands, evolved also.
