    Hi everybody,
    A few weeks ago, I "scored" this cornet off ebay. I did some research, I have an idea, but I'm not sure if I got it right. So here it is...

    It is in C. It is nickel plated, not silver, and I don't show the engraving on the bell on purpose, it might lead you in a wrong direction at first.

    I bet ConnDirectorFan or OldSchoolEuph can help you out with this matter.
    Those valves extremely interesting...... Perhaps French or something?

    :?: the 2nd valve is interesting too. Like a French Besson, but I think it was US made.
    Also, there were not many cornets (or trumpets) made with this brace going from the leadpipe to the 1st valve...

    Yep! 145 is hard to figure out! I don't think that it's a lead.
