Maybe Bochawa will see this and chime in. I've not seen a 24B with a tuning slide brace.
Many Thanks !!!!!
Ha! I'm not here much anymore. My guess is one of the very last 4B's especially with the '21 serial #. There were tail end 4B's with '22 serial #'s, but not long into that year the replacement 26B came on board. This would account for the sometimes present, sometimes not, tuning slide brace. It has the new style casings (they were all copper until mid 1925). It will not have adjustable spring tension valves which is the final acid test for determining 4B vs 26B.
The fixed vs adjustable third valve slide ring as well as the diamond shaped ferrules are all 1920s.The lack of a pinky ring also places it in the 20s.The serial is 186220 puts it in between 20 and 21.It looks alot like the 4b but it is very much like my Opera Grand and The New York .As in the chart they all had straight second valve slides. The engraving is floral and more intricate than many I have seen with engraving around the bell ring.https://goo.gl/images/AP3b4T
Bochawa has seen a lot more horns than I and I know that ATrumpet dude knows his horns too.The one thing that interests me is the twisted tuning slide brace which I haven't seen on early 20s models.22b,24b ,26b or 28b.https://goo.gl/images/AP3b4T
