    Hello. There is a trumpet on E-Bay in the Reynolds Trumpet search site section. Listed "Olds Trumpet Reynolds Legionnaire with Hard Case. Item# 7366291464. Says trumpet was made in Italy called a Legionnaire. Someone was using a angled m. p. judging from the bend in it. What is the story on these trumpets? Are they foreign made junk. Are maybe a great horn slipping through the cracks? Thanks for any input.

    If it was made in Italy it's probably a Prof. Romeo Orsi, they were known for woodwinds I believe but made some brass for awhile too, this one looks a lot like a Couesnon though, maybe a stencil made for them? Anyway, it's just a student level horn, although back in the day, they could be good players. It's not a Reynolds product.

    Hello R.B. Thanks for the info. In future will know to pass over this brand of horn. It was to rough looking to start with. But the brand name was a attention catcher. Now on to other topics. :-)
