German Patent 4129816

Issued in 1992 to the Hohner company, naming Horst Jakubascht as the inventor, this patent covers the most innovative chromatic harmonica design in several decades - the Hohner CX-12. For reasons I don't quite understand, an identical patent was issued with the number 4129817, the only difference being that this latter patent named Wolf Linde and Gunter Weber as co-inventors.
