    I loved the Quaker Orchestra pic and find it interesting that the Quaker on the trumpet and the typography used in the word on the photo look almost the same. That would be really cool if it was a trumpet owned by a member of that orchestra...

    The serial number on the trumpet is 125156.

    I am not going to attempt to learn to play it... I agree that it appears to be a difficult instrument to learn on... But, in regards to the valves they are very smooth and free moving, in fact, a horn player was quite impressed at how good the valves were on it.

    I certainly do appreciate the wealth of info you knowledgeable gentlemen have so generously provided me. Thank you and please, feel free to share any more input you may have....

    Can I see a photo of where it is stamped? The number alone could correspond to a few makers, so it alone is only a small step forward. The location/font will make identification [or at least narrowing-down] easier.
