Bob Dylan's Harmonica from High School, circa 1959
Hohner Echo Harmonica, circa 1959. Very Good condition. In a custom clamshell case. A harmonica that was owned jointly by Dylan and his friend Dale Boutang, played by both during their high school days in Hibbing, Minnesota. Manufactured by M. Hohner, this particular harmonica was chosen because the name of the model was the same as Dylan's girlfriend in high school, Echo Helstrom. The harmonica has been in the possession of Boutang since their school days together, and Boutang has written a letter attesting to the provenance. "I was a classmate and close, personal friend of Bob Zimmerman, who later changed his name to Bob Dylan. Bob and I shared many of our harmonicas and guitars. This one such harmonica, which I ended up keeping from our high school days. I have had [it] in my possession ever since." Perhaps the greatest testament to ownership of this item is Dale Boutang's crudely scrawled name, along the black edge of the harmonica, between the metal plates. Also included are all insurance documents relating to this item while it was on a worldwide tour with the Experience Music Project, a museum of music history founded by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft.
