I owned one of these that had a date stamp of S-66. The serial number was 7544H150. So by that they were made from 1962 to at least 1966.

I fuond one of these at an antique shop quite a few years ago, for 20$, and bought it. Its actually kind of fun to fool around with. Will make a great beginers guitar for my niece.
I think that it is older than the one in your picture.The serial # is 665H150.It also has a stamp which is --62HB.

Just found my first 'learner'. Date stamp is S-66, serial # 8306H150. In surprisingly good shape for having been stashed away, in a case, for at least 30 years!

I was walking down the street to my house one day, and I found one of these sitting in the trash from a small church! It was quite a find for a Harmony collector like myself. Unfortunately, it does not intonate properly, but I can still play a little slide on it.

My parents bought me one of these guitars from a rummage sale for $15. The serial number is 160H150 and I think the stamp says FL-59

Mine is S-66 number 8309H150. Sounds like it is 3 guitars off Statman's specimen. They must have been neighbors at the factory. That's something, isn't it?

Just bought one of these as a toy for the kids to play. Paid $40. Prolly over paid but its a cool corner piece

I recently found the fifth one of these fine, little guitars over the years, and did my full , scalloped X-bracing treatment on this guitar... It really projects and has a full tone, for having the three-quarter scale-length. This one is dated S-69, and the original finish is clean. While the back was off, I added spruce side braces, since there were none, and I travel with the guitar. I put in a holly inlay up the back center, and an inch-wide spruce cross-grain strip to reinforce it. This Harmony, although no longer "original" except for period materials, is "hot-rodded" and I expect it to last even longer with the extra bracing... P

I've got one with stamp of 4658H150. I cannot seem to locate a date stamp though.

Bought one at a rummage sale about 15 years ago for $5. Just now getting around to seeing if it's worth anything. I see that it might not be. :) Nice looking little guitar with sunburst on all sides. Date code looks like S-70-N, so appears to be from the last year produced. Right next to the date code is the fraction "1/2". Serial number 375CH150, or maybe it's 3750H150. Trying to fix the low E tuning peg which can tune only so high before the button starts spinning without moving the shaft.

has the bad bolt on bridge, so with its tiny fretwire saddle it can't be compensated for intonation. File or rout in a 3 mm wide groove for a bone saddle; place new "thick" saddle, and set the proper intonation..then you will hear a great improvement

I just acquired 1653H150 FL59 at a garage sale. No strings. Great condition tho.

Hi! Just picked up one, it's a honey burst vs the tobacco, stamped 4090H150, I can't find the date stamp, for those that have the date stamp, is it just right next to the serial or some other location?
