    Have found many Harmonica reeds, and also some Accordion reeds which are much bigger. But what instrument is this one on the bottom of photo from? Measures 7/8" x 2 1/4" Brass. Only two notes.Click image for larger version.

    I believe the two reed is an accordion reed (push & pull tones).
    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    It is either a concertina reed plate or an accordion reed plate.
    It is best as one grows older to strip oneself of possessions, to shed oneself downward like a tree, to be almost wholly earth before one dies.

    Pistol-pete, here is an identification-confirmation photo for you, Charlie_P. and Creskol are correct... the photo shows the reeds inside an accordion... which has single, double, and triple reeds.
