Very little wear and recently serviced here at the shop. Original valves have good compression with Berp Bio Oil. Best played with a short shank (vintage) taper but modern pieces fit in this horn fairly well.
No dents... cleaned and serviced at the shop. Raw brass finish with nice patina... great engraving. Good solid valve action and all slides move.
This horn is super rare with a Nickel Silver valve block (I haven't seen another like this one).
Serial # dates it to 1923.
