Vintage 1973 MiniMoog Model D SN 4059 with Original 41 Year Old Box!

via this auction

Think about that for a bit. The original box from 1973!! That's 41 years old!  Might actually be 42 years old.  You can see the Williamsville address on it in the image below.  Unfortunately this mini does need some work.

"Original Vintage 1973 MiniMoog Model D analog synthesizer. Manufactured by Moog Music, Inc. Williamsville, NY.

Serial number 4059. Inspection tag is still on the unit! Everything is original! No glued parts, no after market parts, original finish on wood (never sanded).

Includes original Operation Manual plus Original All Schematics.
Date of manual is 4/13/72.

Also comes with the original box!

Needs restoration/ repair/ adjustment. Excellent cosmetic condition for being 40 years old!

Oscillator-2 is intermittent for sound. There are 3 uneven height white keys (lower F, middle C and the last E)

Trigger switch is included in original envelope.

All keys work except 1 black key (F sharp). Sometimes when pressing the keys they can lose their pitch- needs adjustment. The front Moog logo is missing.

The leg that props up the control panel in playing position is perfectly functional.

Has a functional switch for US 115 or foreign 230 volt operation. I am the proud original owner of this beautiful antique!"
