The copy of 119a pictured has only two or four extra Octave Notes and evidence of finish but has no labels to help with identification. It does pass one other test that almost all early versions pass. The first note on the cobs starts noticeably further around as you begin cranking. If this is the early version why does the later one still have almost all of the octave notes? An earlier cob with a different arrangement may be found (see the photos of #190 - Yankee Doodle) or it may be that a no octaves version was made and the octaves were later added back in as is the case with #134 - Marble Halls.
