This horn is in decent condition, with some silver wear.
Gold wash has a bit of fading which is fairly typical of these instruments.
The horn's engraving (see pics) is second to none... truly exquisite.
Pure sterling silver bell
The Valves have good compression and the horn plays well.
At one point in time someone put a nice protective patch on the left-handed side of the horn (where you hold it).
Some fading at contact points and some mini dings.
Horn is sold with no case or mouthpiece.
At this price, this horn is a bargain for a great sounding American cornet
