    It is a 15B in silver plate - the 23BS was the silver-plated Conn student model [i. e. King 600 stencil] available until 2012ish, and it seems like some confuse the newer Conn 22B student horns with the old ones from the 50s due to the recycled serial numbers while others mistake old 15Bs for 23B student horns...

    Well, there is enough "bs" in the listing to support that part of the auction title. You're right though. It does look like a 15B in silver plate. All of CONN's horns in the 1960's were available in silver plate so I guess it could be a silver 17B, but I'm not sure why anyone would do that, especially for a student horn. At least the opening bid price is reasonable, especially for a guy like myself who can do that dent work lickety-split, but I don't really want it!

    Probably $100 would make that horn look "like new."

    ...and then you'd rather have a better model Conn...

    Someone doesn't know the difference between a bell and a leadpipe, either.

    I bought the horn as a '23BS'. And it was difficult to find more info that made sense online from that # when I prepared to put the auction up. The 'M' in the serial number dated it as 1969 on hornucopia. Honestly, the whole horn seems to be made from the same softer metal. It doesn't matter, I just liked the trumpet before the dent.
