What you are bidding on is a 1947 F.E. Olds and Sons Super Recording Trumpet. The Serial number is 25646. It was made mid summer of 1947, one of the last years that this horn was made. To many players and collectors, theses horns are regarded as ONE of the finest horns ever made with superb sound quality that lasts through its life time. These are highly prized horns to own by collectors and players.
I have owned this horn for over 10 years. When I first got it, I had the bell straightend out by Mynett Music Company here in Fort Wayne. It still has the original Mother of Pearl Valve caps, and is made of Brass and Nickel. You can see that in the pictures and is ready to play as soon as you get it. I do not have a case for it. There are only two minor dings that it are in the piping. I have not had it restored to original condition becuase I liked the look that it has now. I have used it on several ocassions. These horns have sold for over $2,500 dollars on Ebay in original condition and also restored over the past few years. Its all up to the buyer what you want to do with it.
I do have this for sale locally and RESERVE THE RIGHT to end the auction early if it sells locally. I am sad to see it go, but I do hope it goes to a good home. If you want to know anything else about the horn or want more pictures, please let me know and I will e-mail them too you. Please just give me an e-mail address to send them too.
