PWK Khorn signatures

Recommended Posts

Is there any significance to a "Paul W. Klipsch" signatures on serial tags of 1977 Khorns? The signatures are vertical on the left edge of tags nowhere near the Inspected & Tested signature lines . Clearly signed in ink. Just wondering ...

Can you provide a picture?  It could mean that Paul personally signed the pair.

Certainly. It also appears the numbers 770524 were written by the same hand just after the signature. Maybe?5aa0b03037aa0_KlipschPwKsignedKlipschorn.thumb.jpg.1df34e1c069d8b4f1e290d379ce7442b.jpg

It certainly appears to be Paul’s signature. Do you know any of the history on these?

  If Paul actually did sign this, I wonder what the numbers meant? Must have been for a reason. Inventory purposes perhaps?

I can ask our museum curator tomorrow. Any history you may be able to provide would be helpful.

Nope, I recently purchased them from an estate sale. I wasn't going to purchase them since I already own a pair but I barely picked up on the signature. I stole them (figuratively speaking of course) knowing the seller didn't even know what he had ... speaker wise not signature.

I suppose I could try and dig deep but you know how estate sales are. These came from a deceased individual and my understanding is they were one owners. One never truly knows in these situations.

I didn't really plan on attending the gathering. But the idea has interested me.

Please remind me of the dates. I suppose if there's sufficient notice, I could look into it. I reckon I could exercise the liberties of recent retirement. :rolleyes:

Honest answer:  Don't know

 

Seems the timing is again, a bit conflicting.  Will know more as it draws closer.

Makes sense. Also happens to be the date of my high school graduation. Ironic
