Yes, 1955. Serial number places this incredible horn as one of the first 38B's out of the Elkhart plant, probably in December 1955 (serial no. 563xxx). Great playing horn with those early Constellation valves that are among the best ever made. Good compression; smooth valve slides. Nice and smooth finish, as lacquer has been removed letting the nickel plate shine through. Recently service at A&G Music in Oakland.

Just dropped price a little bit. I have plenty more photos, if you are interested. I am just shedding some less-often-played horns per my promise and decided to keep the 6B I've had for 20 years. May take on 10-day approval to be certain you like it. Shipping will be $20-35, depending on your location.
