Antique Trumpet Derby Mute Inscribed Jazz Big Band

Previous buyer fell through and did not complete the terms of the sale. There is a very low reserve on this item.
This Derby Mute was found at an antique store in Atlanta, it appears to date from the 1930s - 1940s. The inscriptions on the mute seems to list locations that the band performed at throughout the south. This could be a very rare item, however I do not know what band or individual this is associated with. Please check out the additional high resolution shots to get a better idea of how unique this item is.
