Last week my brother called me to check up on an early Kiensle wall clock he'd seen at the local antique shop. While inspecting it, the store owner started strumming a guitar which because of it's rich sound I approached for a closer look. I had heard about, but had never seen a Martin..., he, had no idea whatsoever. He said it was given to him by a friend, he showed me a receipt of $21 he paid to have it restrung and tuned and that he had an offer of $50.00. In a kneejerk reaction I advised him of the fact that it is probably worth more than anything he has at the shop and not to leave it anywhere vulnerable etc. etc. Needless to say he is quite happy and promised not to sell it. Anyone can help with a date and value estimate? We live in Puerto Rico and there is no market for it here.
