Silver plated manufactured around 1918 by C. G. Conn Co.
Has Patent #1153489 dated Sept. 14, 1915. Serial #43460.
This instrument has some innovations for the time such as the forked Eb and G# trill, which I hardly ever use. I never use the forked Eb and have deactivated it, but it can be reactivated. I especially like the opposing B and Bb on the bell which may be the reason why these notes operate and sound so easily. However, it doesn't have the forked high F, and no high F#.
The silver plate gives the instrument a full sound which some people, including myself, prefer.
I have renovated the instrument to playable condition with some improvements over new. The action is very fast for the two octave C scale. I have polished the silver plate which is approximately 90% intact.
The case is not original and the velvet is a little worn.
Included: Instrument S/N 43460, neck, end plug, neckstrap, and case.
You can audition this one for 30 days and return it for a full refund minus the shipping and handling charge
