Looking for any info on this horn. Serial number dates it to 1908. Nice high pitch horn, plays well, but this is the first horn I have seen with a "Class B" designation. Have no idea what that means and haven't found much info on the net. Any body have any info? Thanx

A hint can be found here. See page 45 footnotes 7 & 8. Also page 46 says “most extant Besson & Co instruments are stamped ‘CLASS A’.”

There might be more info in the article, tldr.

On the “other” site ChopsGone, who also posts on here, comments on what it means. See this thread.

Thanx for the info. I guess that means the "class B' instruments either had lighter plating or another feature not included.
