Price : US $128.45
Marceau & Co. cornet s/n 7. Made in Austria in early 1900's. This brand was imported and distributed by Sears.
The finish is nickel plate and was probably done in 1950's and sports lots of engraving. The mouthpipe is original as is the rest of the horn. There are two joints that have been resoldered. A minor wrinkle in the bell flare has been removed and there is a small dent in the tuning slide crook.
This instrument has a shepard's crook bell and Bb and F mouthpipes . The valves are sluggish and some slides are stuck. The horn will need a chemflush and is being sold ''as is''.
The case is in good condtion and comes with an original mouthpiece and marching lyre.

I have this same cornet. Good condition and wandered what it was worth.
