|RMC was around for only a very short time. Not much survived, heck, little was printed, detailing the product.
If that site is anything like mine, perhaps YTBD would be clearer - yet to be determined.
I became involved in documenting details of piston valve trumpets when, in 2012, I was unable to find much of anything about Holton - certainly only a tiny fraction of the 200+ models of cornets and trumpets I have now identified - in the way of information on a company that had gone away just 4 years earlier, but which had been one of, if not the, most important influences on the evolution of the two forms of the modern trumpet.
These records just were not respected/saved.
Assembling this information is hard. The host of that site has doubtless put a great many hours into research, yet some facts will remain illusive. I know the feeling well.
