The museum purchased the Broadway s/n 5319 May 2012 online from Robert S. Lee, Lafayette, New York, USA.┬áBefore that it was offered for sale on ebay by Kirk Sales, 6th Avenue, Portland, OR. No further history known. Kirk Sales wrote: “The hard shell case was made by the Eagle Lock Co. Terryville Conn. Probably between 1920 and 1930.”

According to Steve Kirtley : “Musical instrument case manufacturers used hardware from all three companies and others, so finding a case with Eagle Lock hardware or Excelsior hardware doesn’t help identify the case manufacturer.”
