US Design Patent 171508

This was issued in 1953 to J. Edward Legler of Fresno, California. The design appears to be purely ornamental, rather than being intended to impart any particular tonal qualities to the instrument:

Legler was granted a couple of other patents for ornamental harmonica designs in the 1950s, including US Patent 2755696.
