I got this book "Hohner - The Living Legend" that was published for 
the 150 Year anniversary. On page 126 it shows a Marine Band (ca. 
1900)  with full length cover-plates, that are rivited left and right 
to the comb. 
I thought this was the way the very first MArine Bands were made. Am i 
wrong? Were these just some kind of "special edition"?
