Vintage Oliver Ditson Boston Trumpet/Coronet
This brass is no longer for sale (sold on 2008-10-16)
Price : US $67.51
I'm the first to admit I am totally out of my league on this one!
This is a Trumpet/Coronet (sorry but I do not know the difference) with engraving on the front ''Oliver Ditson Company, Bay State, Boston'' with a stylized ''ODC''. The name information is surrounded by a flourish of engraving that goes almost to the top of the front piece.
I believe all of the parts are there plus one spare..not sure why that piece is there. All of the knobs and valves work. The tubing polishes quite nicely but the flared horn section has the silver finish worn. All parts of the horn have tiny pinpoint corrosion spots. A good polish may take them out...the kitchen household polish didn't. There is a also a pea sized slight corrosion spot on the inside flare of the horn. I only found two minor dents...one on the very top and one on the flared horn part.
Unfortunately the old square wood box this came in was past salvaging and probably contributed to the pinpoint corrosion of the piece. It was totally apart and extremely smelly...even days out in the strong sun couldn't help.
Actual postage only with no additional shipping or handling fees. If you have any questions please feel free to inquire. Thank You.
