Ironically, the Blues Band and Pocket Pal (and Old Standby and GLH 
and on and on) are less than $5.99, and they have the same design as 
the Special 20.  

I think Hohner's idea was to make one design that they could use to 
replace several of their non-MS models, which included the Blues 
Harp and the Meisterklasse, which were traditional sandwich design 
(like the Marine Band) as well as the full-mouthpiece models like 
the Pro Harp and the Cross Harp.  It's hard to make a single design 
of plate that can be both overhanging and recessed.  It's hard to 
make a recessed mouthpiece in a wood comb and in a metal comb.  So 
overhanging won out.
