    721C5B96-C86B-4E8C-B949-1C552C3F3C9C.jpeg Just bought a French Model and I need a top cap. Like the ones on the end.
    Can anyone help? Can you PM me? Or just reply here.
    Thanks for anything!

    Yeah, thanks! Ha!
    I should specify: any cap that is a tiny bit shorter than the substitute cap in the middle would work. I’ve seen many different styles of knurling here and there...

    Maybe A.N.A. Mendez can help you. Resident olds expert, has some parts. He had bottom caps for my 1940 Olds Super Recording.

    If all Olds trumpets from the 1930s have the same rope style outer threaded caps then there should be some techs who can fabricate new ones.
    Maybe try Josh Landress?

    I got one, but I still need it - I would check Ebay for an Olds, maybe even someone has "just parts"
