Regina Music Box Serial Number Lookup


Regina Music Box Serial Number Lookup




A Regina music box is a mechanical device that plays music by rotating a perforated metal disc over a set of tuned metal teeth. Regina music boxes were produced by the Regina Music Box Co. in Rahway, New Jersey, from 1892 to 1920. They were one of the most popular and successful music boxes in America, and came in various sizes and models, some with coin-operated mechanisms or automatic disc changers.

If you own a Regina music box, you might be curious about its history and origin. One way to find out more information about your music box is to look up its serial number. The serial number is a unique identifier that was stamped on the bedplate or the center spindle of the music box when it was manufactured. The serial number can tell you the date and destination of shipment, as well as the model and style of the music box.


How to find the serial number of your Regina music box




The serial number of your Regina music box is usually located on a small raised area on the bedplate, which is the metal plate that supports the disc and the comb. The bedplate can be accessed by opening the lid or the door of the music box. The serial number is typically a four or five digit number, sometimes preceded by a letter. For example, A1234 or 56789.


In some of the earlier boxes, the serial number might be stamped into the circular platform on the center spindle of the Regina, which is the metal rod that holds the disc in place. The center spindle can be seen by removing the disc from the music box. The serial number might be partially hidden by a washer or a nut, so you might need to unscrew them to reveal it.


How to look up the serial number of your Regina music box




Once you have found the serial number of your Regina music box, you can use it to obtain a certificate that shows its pedigree.
