An aluminum bowl can be cast in one piece, saving time in manufacturing, and no doubt cost.Two years later, in 1900 a travelling piano salesman named Neil Merrill was sought by authorities for falsely advertising used pianos he was selling as new.It is uncertain if it was the same Neil Merrill of aluminum instrument fame.I should note that I have a set of used mandolin strings that Bill once played. This is a picture of Bill Monroe playing the strings mentioned.What other proof would one need that they are indeed authentic?I would imagine that James kept some of his fathers personal effects.

Aluminum was the late 19th century’s “wonder material” in industry.
First discovered in 1820, aluminum was considered rare and extremely expensive to extract from ore.
In 1903, Hutchins Manufacturing Company merged with the Fletcher Aluminum Company as the Fletcher Novelty Aluminum Company for making specialty signs and advertising.
Hutchins was officially dissolved as a company in 1907. Sources: from an unpublished book, “Encyclopedia of American Instrument Makers” by Michael I.
It sold mandolins, guitars, banjos, and zithers made of aluminum.
