And a Morino IV M no less (still considered the best ever Morino series). Would be even better if it were black (but that's a matter of taste).

Here's a look inside that specific Morino IV M (Polish forum):

The "coloured" (white, red, slate) Morino IV M series is part of the older M series. They are also distinguished by having a single stripe in the middle of the grille and the rectangular bass button layout. Here is an example of an older black Morino IV M:

These older IV M series models have real (wooden) bass cassotto and the bass registers were also different.
Old:
   

New:
   

From the late 50's and onwards the newer IV M-series has 3 stripes in the middle of the grille, the more common trapezoidal bass layout and no longer came with that bass cassotto (as far as I've seen online). I also haven't seen one of the newer IV M's in any colour except black.

I worked on a somewhat later Morino IV M which no longer had the real bass cassotto but has the Umleitstimmstock (or Umlenkstimmstock) instead.

This one still had the "Artiste" Hohner reeds. (Later ones have Bugari reeds.)

And as you can see this one has the three stripes. It also has the trapezoidal bass button layout.
