We recently acquired a grouping of vintage and antique musical instruments out of one estate. These instruments have not seen the light of day in decades. There are some very interesting, high quality instruments so please check them out as we will be listing them over the next several days.  THIS LISTING is for an antique Buescher HELICON. It has a very fancy engraved bell which is hard to see from my pictures.  The serial number is 35518 and I would estimate it was made around 1900 or so. It is all silver plate over brass with true tone valves. The over all condition is actually pretty good for such a large instrument with a fair amount of age. There are some expected dents, dings and general wear from use and age but better condition than one might expect. The valves are quite responsive and work well although I'm sure they could use some cleaning and oiling. The slides move freely as well.  We left this old helicon in just the condition it was discovered in. I'm not positive but I believe it may be an E flat. The bell measures approx. 17 inches across. The entire instrument measures approx. 31 by 27 inches. Being sold as found so PLEASE FEEL FREE to email me us for more pictures you may need or for questions you may have and we will be happy to help! This helicon will ship via Federal Express insured carrier ~OVERSIZED~ and will cost 85.00 in the lower 48 United States. NO RESERVE! GOOD LUCK! Thanks! Theresa
