    German or Boehmisch, based on the finger ring. Missed it the first time.

    Not Selmer, I would go with VB being German, valve buttons similar to my german Wohlrab.

    Regards, Stuart.

    It would say German also. Horn and buttons similar to my Devillier stencil. (Bohm Meinl) suspected.

    Yeah, I was following this horn. I was thinking Selmer stencile, but I wasn't sure if Selmer did that back then like Conn, Olds and King did. Looks similar to a Pre-K Mod horn, though.

    The Wohlrabs I knew had milled rings on the third valve slide. Nice playing for early post-war German piston horns.
