This is really a Collectors Item-19 1xx  dates back to 1878 or 79.Quite a vintage horn.
I dont remember seeing a B-flat Besson flugelhorn , with such a low serial number.
Horn is Nickel-plated.At least 99% still on the horn..
I don`t think it is an original plating /I think the horn was replated somewhere along the way.
There is one patch-(shows in the photos)-right where You have Your Right hand,while playing.
It is very thin,almost like it is a part of the horn.
The bell reads: F.BESSON
                        brevette
                       92 Rue D`Angouleme
                       Paris
On the second valve(casing) there is a kind of a circle,and it reads inside:Besson
                                                                                                             brevete
Under the circle is a serial number 19 1xx .Horn looks pretty good as You can see.
For the professional use - valves would need work.
The reserve is kind of low.
