    Hi,

    I have for sale or trade an amazing F.A Reynolds. Serial #13,020. Asking $2,000 or trade for a C Trumpet. My son's youth orchestra is requesting a Bach 229.

    Now, onto the Reynolds. The horn has been recently professionally cleaned by Dana Hofer Brass Repair, according to Dana the horn has undergone an "exquisite re-plating" at some point in it's life. This is only evident by some minor exterior pitting that has been plated over around the valve casings. The original etching is still raised and the horn is just beautiful. There is an etched name of the previous owner. There are a few scuffs around the valve casing. My son called them "case" rash.

    Based on the engraving style and serial number this is the Professional Model from 1946-1952. http://contemporacorner.com/engravings/reynolds/

    I have provided many detailed pics. you can see the scuffing by the valves, also notice the detailed pic of the pitting that has been lacquered over.

    I appreciated any feedback or additional information that this great forum cares to share about this horn. We are located in Chicago. Please feel free to IM me with any interest or additional questions. Thanks.

    That's a beauty.

    Dana's great too. Took my Stradivarius to him this past Summer and it's better than new.
