The horn was produced in Paris, France serial number 20408 yielding manufacturer date to 1958. The bore size measured on the 2nd valve slide measures .468"(Selmers large bore). The bell diameter measures 4.75". The horn features a 1st valve trigger that works flawlessly.
All the old lacquer was removed. What few small dings the horn had were gently removed. The instrument has been chem cleaned and thoroughly cleaned inside and out. The horn was then re-lacquered utilizing a clear baked-on epoxy lacquer. The vintage to rustic finish is not perfect but very close.
This horn has that big warm volume of sound characteristic with Selmer K-Modified trumpets of its time.
The horn was ultrasonically cleaned as well. All new valve stem corks and felts. Excellent port alignment. New waterkey corks. The 1st valve does not have the optional hook (doesn't need one) and the 3rd valve finger ring adjustment move freely without drag. Excellent valve speed and compression.
No Case / no Moutpiece
Notes(11/27/2017): bore size remeasured/verified =.468"
