Do these valves look original? I thought they all had some pearl inlay of sorts.

Are you asking it the valve's finger buttons are original, or if the pistons are original?

(I assumed you were asking about the pistons and then decided I might have misread/understood your OP, since the buttons don't reveal much about the pistons)

Sorry, yes I meant the finger buttons. Just suspected they aren't original. I guess it doesn't say much about the valves themselves.

That’s not a 1955 Conn 22B. If it actually is a Conn 22B, it’s one of those newer student level horns with the same model name, that may have a recycled serial number in the range of the 1950s horns.

Ah ok, that explains why the seller says it's from the 70's. Thx!
