The Larry Adler Pro was, at one time, a better instrument than the 
standard... the 270 version had long life reeds for a time and they were 
long slot reeds.
I don't know if the Long life reeds were put in the 16 hole version.
However.. apart from a fairly short time I believe that the only difference 
between the standard and the LA version was/is the box and the 
coverplates.  Functionally they are identical.

If this instrument is from the 50s or earlier then you have a potentially 
nice instrument on your hands... not valuable but a nice sounding harp!
