Notes:"[This instrument] has always had two dates that have been associated with it 1717 and 1721 and that has caused some great confusion. Recently, we were able to get some really good photographs with the label being seen under ultraviolet light, and have been able to discover that the date is actually 1711. That is the new date we are using in all of our material and we have shared the photographs with others in the field that agree with this new assessment."
