Here comes a late 40ies or early 50ies (serial number is 3738) vintage french ''ANTOINE COURTOIS PARIS'' breveté model flugelhorn in great original condition: the silverplating is 95% with only some small spots of wear, especially around the hand contact points and the water key, there are no dents and the french brass alloy is very healthy without traces of red hot or corrosion.
