C# / Db (closest chromatic pitch)
Collected by Andrew Tracey, London, 1965 from someone who came to see Wait a Minim, who himself had bought it at a street market.
Well-made instrument. AT added/replaced string to hold the rattle plate. It is a factory string with a strand removed to make it look home-made [Andrew Tracey].
