I have a beautiful, never-used dulcimer labeled "Rugg & Jackel Music Company / Made in the United States of America" around a "Folk Roots Dulcimers" logo. If I'm reading the hand-written information correctly, it was the 10th dulcimer made on November 2, 1987 (the number is smudged a bit on the first digit, but it appears to read "1128710." The model number looks like "D-005" although the "5" could be an "S" -- it's loosely penned.
Is it possible that Mr. Rugg himself made this dulcimer?
I'm hoping to sell the instrument to someone who will actually play it (it was owned -- and unfortunately ignored -- by my late husband), but I am not knowledgeable about how to do this. Could anyone advise me on the best way to get the word out about the availability of this dulcimer?
