Hammond identity, dating
I have Hammond organs without any documentation. No serial number.
At the back is a sign.
Soundmec Mammond MIOI split by Maidstone.
I think they are custom made - portable. Split on half.
I itend to restore them and replace white plastic with wood.
There are some problems whith bas pedas. (one pedal - multiple notes)
Also I m looking for Hammond oil.
There will be more pictures in my album.
Thank you for any help.
If you're asking about the identity of the organ in your album, it looks to me like an M100 series spinet in a really bad chopped cabinet. When they butchered that organ, did they remove the ID plate from the back of it? If not, here is a link to a site where you might be able to identify it....
Regarding the Hammond oil, I'd suggest....
I found their service to be fantastic.

ID back plate
Very intresting links.
I was already looking fo similar organs.
They are close to L 100-122 series.
All I know they come from London.
There is more photos
- american USA Hammond lamps inside and one photo of ID back plate.
I Hope the valnut is the right organs wood.
Helo from Slovenia
I'm sure AndyG will see this thread and will be able to tell you anything and everything you want to know about a Hammond organ from the UK.
Did that put that nasty white plastic on top of the original cabinet?
Me & My M3
No, no. That plastic (ultrapas) is not on top of the original cabinet.
It seems they are original custom built.
There is no cover for kyboard. I will made it.
The chair is (valnut wood) from another console organs.
Here is another useful Hammond dating site, but it's based on serial numbers:
Thank you all.
I found my organs - M102
When I start to play, the neighbourhood become silent.
