It is Serial Number 1(the first run of the new Model F to the D130 Full Range line) 0019 so 10019, in a speaker that changed the world, in 1956, when MR FENDER himself said to JBL, the company, love the full Range D130 I been growing up with, but I have a new style of amp to go with these I am building with for my new sound would sound great with if you can tweak the old D130? Everyone would want one, Jimmy Hendrix, Eric Clapton to name a few, and this same speaker in the version it is in for it changed from the cloth to the rubber in 70, but this speaker since it rolled out in 1956 in 69 was there, perhaps this one, but JBL suppled these for locals and Altec Lansing supplied the upper half at THE Woodstock Concert, yeah, this was those, in 15's with a MASSIVE 4 inch coil.

The hand writing 156 (1st run 1956) with a fancy N next to it ;) (and again I have the 19th one off the line, not 14567, making it the 4,567th one, but 10019 with INITIALS from all who was working on it), the ONLY one in the world, yeah, its a D130F, but it is like finding a Babe Ruth name on a new Nickle Spaulding any kid could go buy at the time, in mint condition and ink that looks still wet on it. HELLO?!?!

I have the ONLY one in the world like this with the lowest number stamped on this "kind" of speaker that came out in 56, making it soooo rare in the Guitar world, with initials of people who have been lost to fire and time, that is like digging up a complete dino, only one of its kind complete with hairs and sperm/eggs, or a new Spalding baseball, which you could buy for a Nickle, but it has all the people who made that ball, or has Babe Ruth on that ball, for all these speakers, and serial numbers were lost to time with the fire in the 60's, and I have proof it is 100% legit, the granddaddy that started it really all for then it went nuts with the electric guitar at that point, for its not when it was invented (the guitar), but the sound it and Fender invented that made this speaker huge, its the fact its almost as close to the oldest one known with serial number 10019, but I have Initials by the people who worked on the group, and all my fancy initials and writing was done OH and stamp 21057, but mine also has 013 under that, and is in a location under the whole cage, sideways, unlike any other is placed in a place you could not sign, especially THAT FANCY, in between the cage of the speaker, and would of had to before the speaker was assembled, for there is no way you could without destroying the speaker to do so, so #19 off the Line, In new condition, for thats not rust, its glue that got everywhere making a (prototype?), has initials everywhere, but it places thought out, and SO FANCY no one could replicate them, unless they destroyed the speaker.

So cannot make them that way ever so, on there since day one, stuck the normal 21057 stamp, in white like all the rest on the cone, out in the open so as to stamp quick and push down the line, when where mine is located super tough to see, let alone thinking you would ever get a stamp up in the for one perfect, but mine has the 210057 number, but a 3 digit number to maybe be the importance to the initials and the 13th of whet in there, for you cannot just go on up there in the stamp and add extra numbers, and lets not forget that emblem up above that, and the significance of it, in conjunction that makes this NO A REGULAR ALL DAY LONG D130F off ebay this is huge.

I found a speaker, and had to write nerd to get this across as if you are a huge fan of the old 56ish fenders, that had this speaker in it, well then I got the first run of the superman comics, and has initials of everyone out, for it was just not number one of it, but it was number one, of number one, and everyone put a mark on it who worked on it kind of deal here!

Could even be a prototype for the MAN himself, HIMSELF, in a "interview" did mention he was in charge of the degin for Mr Fender and what he wanted, slapped a F on it and called it a day meaning Fender, or what later to become, anything with a F on it meant the musical applications, but he was also asked about a prototype and to me kind of went around the question, with specs n crap, and not say yes or now to the new one they was making, and could this be that one, for that's no RUST you are seeing, the paint is perfect and I do not even see a pin head of paste on it anywhere, and it looked like someone at the factory went nuts, and while High on the glue that was supposed to be use, or lack of due to costs beings its a new speaker, and fell off easy when I was taking pictures, be sloppy with the glue, and the got passed around for all to initial off on the new project. Didn't care about the glue and stuff, but, enough care for creativity on each of the letters on it, and in places you would have to destroy it, to put them there, meaning, they were on there, and then cone installed in those places.....LINK

HOLY SH.....

I found another mark, and in taking its picture, and despite what looked to be paper, is actually cloth, for I took a pick of the surround with light coming through it, and a better close up of the cone and the surround from the front. and judging by a serial number pic I found on one from the 60's, well then yeah, I can only assume mine is much much much older, and closer to that 50's being correct for it, before Jensen took over production of them in 67.265788545_1092600014824983_2522078736542538004_n.jpg268053290_723921385249779_2859806733167772102_n.jpg268794056_673149893698896_322795163591550209_n.jpg261657282_1316720612089201_4080114270218024_n.jpgjbl-2.jpg

JUST TO BE CLEAR, the 2nd Pic of the serial plate, in my reply IS NOT MINE! Mine is in the first run of pictures, where the plate was bents a little where you can see the number on on the bend followed by 0019, so again mine reads 10019. I can find NO pot marks on it anywhere so as I can date it that way, and I am still having one heck of a time with that serial number, for all I find is sooo much larger of numbers on them, none of which I have found that started with a one, bbut NONE of the numbers followed even by the double zeros as mine has, and a low number of 19 after it.

I THINK I FOUND IT!!

That listing is has the correct serial plate, and though cannot date it 100% due to this speaker been used way befor it got the F for Fender badge, I posses then, maybe, the first run and revision of the update going into Fender amps around the 1954 year fender started putting them in their stacks giving the old 40's D130 making it the D130F(Fender) at being made in 1954, for it would be the 1st run, hence the one, then 0019, making it the 19th one off the line. Of course there is no real telling due to the fact the factory burnt down, and almost all the serial numbers for the runs were lost in it, and I am sure this was one, hence why I cannot find ANY other one looking like mine, and the surrounds that look like mine, but that links listing, where is surrounds are the same as mine and claims his are legit, when all other of that model do not even come close to what our two do. Also his serial number has many more numbers after the first number 1. Also I would feel if you are going to be mass producing them by putting them mosty in a fender, if they started at jst number 00001 and not 10001, then I have yet to see a single one that had the first number as 0, all I have seen gone from 1 or higher as the first number, and all kinds of crazy jumble after that but none even come close to even 10xxx, for if anything they start with 1, then another number 1-9 and so on.

So not getting tooooo gigidy gigidy right now, so please, PLEASE someone help me prove me right or wrong. I been looking at this stuff for over a day now, going insane, for I was stupid back in my 20's and had a old coffee table made out of leather, old as heck, knew coind and paper vintage stuffs sorta, was just getting into that hobby, but it looked like poker style, but really low to the ground, and sold it for $50 to a antique dealer for$50 because I was broke and place was just robbed and needed to get out of Joliet for at that point hated it, and after he gave me a word of advice, after telling me it was from the early poker table worth bank, my fault lessoned learned, told me to make sure and get the right information on what youre selling or buying, so you do not get taken again. So Id like to know if anyone can support what I just wrote or prove me wrong, please please please, do not wish to shoot myself in the foot if this really is the first run of the F series, and if it really is the 19th one to roll off the line, for it will make it the oldest out there, and should pull in a few bucks more then others on ebay, or where ever if I decide to keep it, or pass it down.

TIA!!!!!

Cool old speaker! I always heard the term "doped cloth" for the type of surround that is on this speaker, it is very durable.
