Default Wow....Great Pictures And Thank You

You spent some time with your post and we appreciate it! Thank you. Your Rock Ola looks like the one Dad bought for me when I was 12. I think he paid $20.00 (?) thru the NRA or DCM. Now what is yours worth? Hee hee. HB of CJ (old coot)

You're welcome! I enjoyed doing it. I got a decent idea but not 100%. I wouldn't mind getting it appraised just for a better idea. Worth is something agreed upon by a seller and a buyer in my book. Everyone has their reasons haha! I really love the way the Rock-Olas look, must of made some fine looking jukeboxes.

Truly one of the nicest M1's I've seen...exactly what I've been looking for. Lucky for it to have stayed in the family for so long.

So Adam did anyone come up with any ideas on the two trigger housing stamps.Maybe start a new thread asking this with just that one photo showing the stamp..I am curious about why it was done also.

Maybe Quality Hardware recieved some trigger housings from Rock Ola and retamped them their name on them.Not a expert but just a guess..Thanks

Q-NL is National Lock for QHMC. If the part went from Rock-Ola to QHMC it would not have the QHMC sub-contractor code. There are other believed to be original Rock-Ola's with this housing. There are other indicators that thus is a QHMC housing that was transfered to Rock-Ola.

With the main indicator being it looks just like a National Lock TH but not like a Rock-Ola TH.
