1885 Martin 0-28 w/ original coffin case!
Excellent condition, with age estimated from "6-1885" is written in pencil on the underside of the top, lack of serial number,  "C.F. Martin & Co, New York" on back brace and "C.F. Martin, New York" on back of non-slotted headstock, ivory friction tuners, and lack of fingerboard inlays.  Adirondack spruce top, beautifully figured Brazilian rosewood back & sides, genuine elephant ivory binding, nut, saddle, bridge pins, strap button, neck heel cap, and tuners.  Very little wear for such an old instrument, and only a single back crack, expertly repaired.  "VIIII" in pencil near the neck block.  Neck has a little relief, but the saddle is good, and the guitar has good, playable action, and sounds fantastic!  Includes both the original Martin wood "coffin" case, and a modern TKL arch-top hard shell.  A museum-quality piece of guitar history!
