Cylinder Music Box Wound Tight

Numbered 44357. Brass and steel lever winding mechainisms on the left side and a "change-repeat" and "stop-play" control on the right. I tried to count 46 teeth, I think. I don't know anything about these music boxes but an "expert" told me it could be repaired because it was wound too tight(?) Sorry I am not more knowledgeable - it's just been in our family forever it seems!!! Box measures 16" wide, 7 1/2" deep, 4 1/2" tall. Plays 6 songs~ title on original label are:
1. Eiminie March- Jakob**i
2. The Crowing Hen Mazurka - Hudran
3. White Wing Song- Winter
4. The Black Hussar Polka- Millocker
5. I'll take you home again - Meshenduff
6. Don Caesat Waltz- Dellinger
Outside of box is worn- some of the original applique shows through.
