Description Technical Specs
 
Vintage Near Mint Quality Magic Circle Aluminum Washboard
Distinctive "dual target" design pattern
Generates relatively low tone.

Genuine Vintage Magic Circle Washboard. Made by Hand-E-Mfg. Co.
Aluminum is softer than other metals. Rub surface generates relatively low "muted" tone (well, at least for a washboard).

Which Washboard Grade is Right for You?
Every
washboard we sell is a fine playing vintage instrument. All parts are intact and in good working order. For all practical purposes each washboard plays just as well as the next. The difference in price merely reflects the outward appearance of the wood, the rubbing surface, and the ink.

Washboards in all grades below are antique objects that might show signs of age, wear, or inconsequential damage such as small chips in the frame, water staining, and paint spots from long term storage or display.

Grading Scale in a Nutshell:
The weathered ones cost less, the clean unblemished ones cost more.

Good
Might show scuffs, scratches, minor cracks in wood. Ink might be faded or missing. Might show conspicuous corrosion, soap residue or other slight imperfections. No significant cracks in wood frame. No pin holes, cracks or breaks in metal rubbing surface. No serious ruts, dents or substantial scratches (i.e. washboard was not a musical instrument in former life). No missing back ribs. No missing parts. Framework is sturdy yet flexible. Washboard has been around the block a few times but is eminently playable.

Better
Overall better condition.

Near Mint
Light wear. Hardly used. Little or no soap residue. Ink color and print quality usually good, but not always.

Mint

Appears unused. Ink color and print quality usually good, but not always. Belongs in a museum. Don't know why you would want to scrape up a fine antique relic like this to play music on it though.
