I have a Harmony Cremona model H1308..The paper tag on the inside indicates it is most likely from 1942..The headstock binding and inlay is somewhat different than the H1308 pictured...

Not sure whether you're trying to keep track of the whereabouts of Harmony guitars....
Just got a 1942 1308 Cremona blonde. Somewhat beat up and has had a neck rod added, but plays beautifully - almost as good volume projection as my friend's 1961 Gibson - not bad for a 74 year old guit that's been played hard! What a beautiful looking guitar. "Wartime" wooden tailpiece has been replaced with a brass Grover tailpiece, and tuner knobs are metal instead of the "wartime" plastic (?) ones.
Great site you've started here. Keep up the good work!
