Vintage Frank Holton Trumpet
This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-08-18)
Price : US $43.88
You are looking at a Frank Holton Trumpet with serial number 85879. This horn measures approx. 20 inches long and the bell is 4.5 inches in diameter. The bell reads 'Made by Frank Holton Elkhart Ind.' and there is also an engraving by the finger ring that reads ' Pat Oct. 21 1924'. The mouthpiece receiver has an 'LP' engraving. The slides on the horn are a bit tight but still move pretty easily. The valves move up and down freely. I'm not sure of the compression on them. This horn has a few dents which can be seen in the pictures. There is on right across from the 3rd valve, a few small dings on the shepards crook and there is a spot that has been repaired right above the shepards crook. On the second valve slide there is a small soddered repair spot which can also be seen in the pictures. This horn doesn't include a mouthpiece.
Overall the horn is in pretty good shape for the age of the horn. The right person could really clean this horn up nicely.
