Database Manager on January 22, 2008:

Updated through on-line information from John W. Decker, Cleveland, OH. -- I have the Concert Flute and Unda Maris that were not used in the Skinner re-build (Austin Opus #573). It was offered in the Diapason Magazine in the 1990s. I saw it and bought it for $500. It was a direct purchase from Brigham Young Univ. and the bottom C is stamped Opus #573. They said it was not used in the Skinner Rebuild. It's a home hybrid organ and the twin set is gorgeous.
