US Patent 173991

Take a look at this zither-like instrument. Guess what is supposed to fit into that slot, marked 15 in the diagram? You guessed it.

Issued in 1929 to Fred C Peslin of Oakland, California, this is yet another variation on the Harp-O-Chord theme, an instrument "that will add to the harmony and augment the music played by the ordinary harmonica".
